DescriptionA thin, somewhat burly start to a brief respite on slightly less steep rock for a few bolts. A steeper, thinner section awaits as you climb up under the roof and trend right towards the narrowest spot of the overhang. A couple of pockets along the way help out, then a committing couple of moves on less-than-satisfactory feet get you established under the roof.
A burly-but-well-protected move over the roof will have you heaving a sigh of relief (and cursing the local shrubbery).
After the roof, pass a set of anchors on your right while continuing up easier ground. Somewhat spacier bolts lead to a bit-of-a-nerve-wracking top out on a ledge. Be wary of lots of small, loose debris on the top-out ledge.
LocationApproximately mid point on the wall, this line leads up to the roof which dominates the left side of the wall, then follows the roof line as it trends right and up to a narrow spot in the roof.
Note that the anchors are set back on a ledge and aren't visible from the ground.
