Crux liebacking leads to easier moves above. You can place gear, but the flake feels dangerously loose - thus the "R" rating.


An obvious right-facing flake, to the left of Grit Roof


a #3.5 or #4 camalot near the start, #2-3 camalots above

Mike Jaffe and I got the immediate second ascent of this, and we were all calling it "Pope's Crack" since he'd led the FA. It was, I thought, a POS, with grunt dirty moves on poor rock. When we landed on the top we hung out to shoot encouragement to Tobin Sorenson as he was working away on "The Grit Roof". Pretty sure we were watching the FA of that route, too. Apr 12, 2015

I disagree with the original comment. I enjoyed this route (just did it a second time) and it has some fun moves. While I do agree that the loose nature of the primary flake on this climb, there is good pro to be had deeper in the crack. You can also work a much more tame roof to the left of Grit Roof.
