A 12' roof crack starting fingers and quickly going to hands then OW. Circus tricks ensue to gain a wide horn at the lip.


This route is on the northeast side of Escape Rock, right off the trail that leads out toward Room to Shroom or the Don Juan Boulder. The roof is high on your left, easily visible, several hundred yards past the dam/Rat Rock area. If the lake is dry, the approach is a straight shot. If full, skirt the right/east side of the lake and eventually back around the north end, this is a better option than crossing the dam and doing endless slab traversing and boulder hopping.


Tips to huge.

This looks like it could be a fun one for a Top Rope Tough Guy like me.... Can this one be safely TR'd? What's the anchor situation on top? (and is there an easy way to get up there?) Aug 4, 2010

Jeff, the routes to the top of the formation are mostly gritty and junky, but a tr can be set up. The bottom of emotional rescue is also pretty trashy...once at the roof the quality improves. The route just isn't good as it looks like it would be. Dec 18, 2010
