Description

This is a fun route that looks harder than it is. While there is some choss-wrangling down low, the roof moves are pretty wild and fun. Definitely worth the effort if you're in the area.

Location

To the left of Screamweaver. It's the huge friggin roof.

Protection

A rack of cams, a rack of nuts, and a slings.

The crux section protects well with 0.4" pieces. Placing the gear can be pumpy so don't fool around too much. Jan 18, 2010

I used ring locks to pull the roof. Don't be like me and miss the good holds. Oct 31, 2011

The holds are there. Pretty much a fun, steep boulder problem on gear. Hard to get back on the wall if you blow the crux following. Nov 7, 2011

Can't believe I am just now getting to this... But I found a large cam on this route earlier this year. If it is yours, please tell me the size and tape code, and I will work out how to get it to you. Thanks! Jun 18, 2016

With permission from both the FA party and the State Park, a bolted anchor has been placed in effort to reduce trampling on the fire-damaged topout; many climbers have been hiking off rather than rapping down and the park is in favor of discouraging this practice. Dec 18, 2017
