Description [Suggest Change]

Classic Obed roof! Start off with a tricky boulder problem that guards the first bolt (stick clip). Climb the face and catch a great rest at the top just before the roof. Climb the roof doing some cool moves. Get passed some small holds and reach the chains.

Location [Suggest Change]

Located at Lilly Bluff. Look for the obvious roof with fixed draws. Bolt line starts about 15 feet right of the chimney near the center of the wall.

Protection [Suggest Change]

7 bolts to chains

Amazing! The bottom boulder problem goes at V4 or V5, but don't let that dissuade you from getting on this thing, because one of the most stunning and bouldery roof climbs at the Obed awaits! Much, much better than Heresy. Get on it, you won't be disappointed. Jun 18, 2017
Literally amazing! Get On This Climb and you will be hooked. Best roof climb I have ever done. This route starts with a stout v5ish problem on the ground to a easy face then you start on the real business in the roof. Jun 18, 2017
