A sure to be neo-classic this is my favorite line on the wall linking the meat of "Jack the Ripper" with the best part of "Cop Out".

It starts with a tricky boulder problem and follows a thin seam to a no hands rest. Then an airy traverse into a perfect dihedral and through the roof on good holds.


Start on "Jack the Ripper" in the over-hanging seam and follow a thin crack to the left corner. Then head right in the horizontal crack over to the dihedral.


A #4 Camalot can be placed off the ground and then try to place a #3 off a manky sloper or do the boulder problem and place it when stable. Small and nuts and cams thereafter.


I thought the boulder problem at the start was definitely 5.11a moves. You're right easier after that except maybe pulling around the roof. Jun 27, 2011

So when does this route become 5.11a? Are the moves below/out of the roof of Cop Out really 5.11 moves? Jun 27, 2011
This is unfortunately a solid R rated lead only for the boulder problem to start in which there is good pro but it's hard to place until after you are through with it.

I used double ropes on lead to deal with rope drag. On a single line long runners and thought to placements is advised. Oct 4, 2010
