Description

This brilliant route travels over 3 steep roofs on big holds. Pulling through the 3rd roof seems to be the crux as the pump has caught up to you by this time.

Location

As you come down the Upper Fifth Canyon trail, take a right and follow along the cliff band. You will notice a series of 3 roofs and 4 routes (this being the furthest lookers right) Scramble up to an upper ledge to start the routes. Consider tieing your belayer off to the first bolt on adjacent routes as the footing here is loose, with a nasty fall below.

Protection

7 bolts to a 2-BA
Stick clip the first bolt, as a fall before the first would send you tumbling off the ledge.
