Description

Mount up and climb this big bertha! Watch out or its awkward little roof might have you romantically straddling some rock.

Begin just right of arĂȘte and climb up and left to a cramped stance below the little roof with a large crack. Place some solid pro, re-orient yourself (maybe take a second to whisper a few sweet nothings to the rock) and then get it on! Once the deed is done and the roof is mounted, continue straight-up on easier ground. Top out, create an anchor and then watch the rest of your party struggle below.

Location

Far right side of wall. The large arĂȘte you first come to when hiking in from the Germini area.

Protection

Trad: G rated. Watch for some opportunities for natural pro on the chicken heads above the roof.
