Start in the corner, climb up into the chimney section, then bust a move out the big roof on good holds. Feels like the Gunks for a brief moment.


The central line on the cliff, look for the obvious chimney/corner leading to a big roof.


Most will top rope, though you could lead it. Take small to medium gear, some of the placements might take some creativity.

Climbed this twice today and im solid at 5.8 and this was pretty tough.
The roof is big and it might be on good holds but it is super scary the first time and way more fun the 2nd time. Way bigger in person. Some great sketchy exposure under the roof.

The 5.10b cracks on the flat face next to this are short but are super tough and offer more of a challenge Nov 17, 2015
Pulling the roof in the right corner is a challenging 5.9 variation. Nov 27, 2017
