Description

A very fun line just left of Los Banditos. Save a little gas for the last bolt. There's a sit down ledge about half way up.

There is a .12a extension moving up from the first set of anchors.

First bolt is easy clipping followed by big right hand, into good lay-back hold. Clip off lay-back. Follow holds to 3rd bolt. 3rd to 4th bolt can be tricky at first and I've seen it done two ways. Go straight up using small right hand crimp (feet are crucial so you can actually reach the hold). The other way I've seen this done is veering off far left and coming back right(but this sets you up for a bad swing if you fall). Pull The lip, get a good no hands rest in on the ledge if your pumped. Easy moves up to next bolt. Second lip is the crux. If I remember correctly (could be wrong), you will go right hand to the slot with thumbs down and pull up to a good left hold, high feet and pull the lip. Game over after that.
Climbing the roost can be tricky at first if your not used to it. Feet can feel slick and you'll not want to trust them. I really disliked this place the first few times I climbed here but then fell in love with it once I got used to trusting my feet more.
