Description [Suggest Change]

Joe Brown Special climbs up a widening crack in a left-facing corner below an overhang. Climb the corner, watch out for some loose rock, gain a good ledge, and then climb through the overhang using the crack that splits it.

Location [Suggest Change]

This route is located on the right side of the French King Buttress which is the third crag that you will come to after the Main Face. Just right of the route Tale of Two Cities.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Small to medium-sized gear, the roof crack is easy to protect.

Not sure if maybe we strayed a little too far from the original line on this one by moving up and to the right from the stance below the roof and then over the roof using the crack on our left, but it felt way soft for 5.9. Mar 19, 2012
