Thuggy, odd little roof to gain the 2nd bolt. Then it's maybe 10- to finish up. Fun climbing and worth an effort. Jan 18, 2014

Tried this route and could not find a way to get over the roof. Comparing photos, it appears about a foot of the triangular block has disappeared. Maybe that's why or maybe I'm just weak....

With the block gone, getting over the roof was one of the more unpleasant moves I've ever encountered. Hard to grade but certainly took 5.12 effort. A great one to sandbag your partner into, while warming up. Feb 26, 2018

Just weak, Mark :) Still mid .11 effort with a little foot faith and mantel know-how. Mar 6, 2018

This was the second sport route established at the East Quarry. I always found getting over the roof to be quite hard. The section above the 4th bolt seemed like 5.11c on the first ascent, but it seems to have gotten much easier with better holds in the seams. Jan 5, 2019

I went to the OS but just did not get my right foot high enough and could not rotate my shoulders.

Grabbed a stick and clipped the first bolt and sent. It's a bit burly and certainly harder if you don't have length in your legs.

Mid-11 effort after the stick clip. Mar 31, 2019
