Description

The big tough roof!

Gain the starting ledge and clip the first bolt. Climb through sustained slopers and crimps on the technical face to get established below the roof. Make the tough and scary clip under the roof. Don't blow this clip or you might slam the ledge below. Explode to the lip of the roof and make another big committing move to gain the often wet and dirty ledge above. Mantel onto the ledge and place some gear to protect the second during the crux. Clip the bolt out left or move right into the Stain's upper face. Climb either face to their respective anchors.

Location

This is just left of the Stain under a large roof. Look for chalked up holds directly below a roof with a bolt underneath it.

Protection

3 bolts and a single rack. Some long runners will help. Two bolt anchor at the top. A 60m or smaller will get you down.
