Description Suggest change

From the stairs heading to chockstone tower, find a crack with a couple good hand jams leading up to a roof and exiting left to a notch. The crux is just below the blocky roof. I would consider following the crack, then going climbers right till head level with the roof to slot a nut in a verical crack, climbing down a move or two under the roof and then finishing left as this is the cleaner climb. Passive pro makes this a fun trad lead...but feel free to plug some cams. Be careful of bad rock in the roof. For a variation, feel free to climb straight up and over the roof, but you might have to garden a bit to make it better...so please dont garden!

Protection Suggest change

Trad is the way to go. Set of nuts, hexes, curved hexes if you have them. Some webbing or chord for tree anchors. bad/dead trees for anchors up top so probably dont tr and weight this all day
