Classic short roof crack. Easy climbing to ringlocks and thin hands over the roof, followed by more easy climbing.

There is high potential for the rope dropping DEEP into the crack if seconding/toproping. Easy walkoff around to the right.


It is pretty easy to locate this route as you walk through the field to White Lightning. Gradually pick your way up through boulders until you are at the base.


Crux is green camalot sized. Above the roof is perfect hands splitter to a very easy (5.6-ish?) offwidth. More hand/thin hand pieces for anchor.

Beautiful natural roof crack- damn hard if you have big hands. If you feel solid on 3 camalot size hand jams, then don't bother.

There is a small section of this crack that is filled with twigs and cactus quills followed by a ledge with a mountain of poop! but dont let this dissuade you, it is well worth the aesthetic roof!
be careful with what gear you place at the roof, as the rope will inevitably track trough the crack and spin your cams.
the walk off was fairly easy. Jul 16, 2015
