Description

Start on near vertical rock, head up and left to a vertical crack, pull a couple of awkward moves to a good stance below the roof, place some good gear, and get moving on the rather steep roof. Exit to the left before the end of the roof!

Other advice from the guide book...

Start: At left most side of cliff on a bushy pedestal.
Pitch 1: Move up the face and angle left to where a roof and angling crack system meet. Follow the corner up and right until you can monkey-bar onto the face using huge jugs. Continue up the face to a natural belay near the top of the cliff.
Descent: Move right to rappel from the two bolts atop "Eros Direct". 80 feet.
