Description

Start approx. 10ft right of Doug's roof, on blocky holds. The crux is moving through these holds and into the easier roof section. A fall on this lower section will send a top-roper swinging out into space and has the potential for collision with rocks on the ground, hence the name! Finish on 20ft of ledgy, featured sandstone, angling gently left toward the Doug's Roof anchors.

Protection

Two pieces of webbing. Create anchor at the Doug's Roof chains.

Been a while since I was on it but yep the start is definitely the crux. Very sequencey and not obvious. I think this is a better route than Doug's Roof however, despite it's relatively lower popularity. Jul 7, 2016

Harder than it looks. I remember climbing this 15-20 years ago. One of the old school locals gave me a hip belay and I was very surprised to pop off on the crux. Fortunately the hip belay worked. Oct 12, 2017
