Description

Follow edges and a few small breaks up a steep and tenuous face. A small tcu helps protect a spacious spot.
Roof cranking fun and worth a run.

Location

The Straw is on the middle tier and lookers left of the main trail. It shares one of the taller croppings of solid rock with London Bridges, Crumble Cake, and a few others.

Protection

Several bolts, a small selection of tcu's, and a bolted anchor.

I only clipped four bolts on this one and plugged a small cam. I don't think there are 7. Crux comes right at the top. Jul 24, 2011
