Description

The left side the large roof at the left end of the Big Enchilada (south) is split by a fist/offwidth crack. A distinctive pine grows on a ledge above the roof. Two cracks, about three feet apart lead up from the ground to this roof. Climb either the left or right crack, or use both until reaching the ceiling. A sharp flake, apparently solid, is used to start the moves through the roof. Easier climbing to the top.

Note that Wa3lt's

Location

Route #7 in Chen/Wehner, as shown in
South side of the Big Enchilada. Sorry for the poor quality, this is a photo of a photo. . Look for the small tree halfway up.

This climb is also listed as Beverly #9 (5.10c) and Jackson #24 (5.10?).

Protection

If you want to practice this climb on top rope then you should throw your ropes from the top anchor to the (skiers) left of the pine tree, otherwise you'll be top-roping route 6. This climb is a well-protected PG lead.

For additional fun you can climb either the left or right crack leading up to the roof (and avoiding the other). Can anyone pass the roof using inversion techniques? Jul 22, 2018
