Description

The bottom 60 feet is great with the last 30 being okay and a little sharp. Climbing through the big tiered roof is really cool and the crux will really test you. I predict most will find it pretty tough to onsight. Well worth doing

Location

Just to the left of the big weakness on the left side of the North Buttress of the Rough Rider Wall. 3rd or 4th route from the left.

Nice Dom & Anders!

13 bolts to mussy hooks. Long slings are recommended near the roof to prevent drag. May 28, 2012

Hard to read crux, should be easier with a little chalk on the holds. Actually quite fun when figure it out. Top is definitely a little sharp for my liking. Overall, once you figure out what NOT to grab, not a bad route. May 7, 2013
