Description

Wide hand to fist crack which runs up to a huge roof. Route is 5.9 to the roof, mid to high 5.10 with the roof. The roof has a committing finish withe either a nasty heel hook or a tensiony, tough full-body slither up through the very edge of the crack.

Location

Route is around arete to the left of Edward's Crack, obvious crack.

Protection

New anchors above the roof. Medium to large pro, large (fist-sized or larger) pro for the roof.

Roof move is 5.10b (IMO) and bolt-protected. #5 and/or #4 C4 can be placed above the bolt. My favorite Tongue River Canyon trad line for the varied types of movement. May 14, 2014
