Description [Suggest Change]
This is a fun climb with a big roof at the end. Up until the roof, the route is fairly easy - almost like Vertical. The roof has a crack that runs out the middle of it. Pulling over the roof is the crux of the climb. There aren't many holds above the roof. The climb finishes on a ledge with a pine tree on it. This is the same ledge that Vertical finishes on. From there you can class 4 scramble down to Strawberry Jam Pillar or walk over to Epitaph Wall.
Location [Suggest Change]
This climb is all the way the the right end of Breakaway Wall. The climb is almost on the arete. To the right will be the class 4 scramble to get up to Strawberry Jam Pillar.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Not the best gear for the roof but you can get a smaller c4 in the crack in the roof. Bring extra webbing/rope to set up the anchor in the crack at the back of the ledge (about 15-20 feet back) if you want to back up the tree.
