Description

This is a fun moderate route with a cool roof move thrown in to boot. Climb up and clip first bolt of "Old Crow". From here follow the moderate corner up and right to a ledge with a small roof above. Continue up and right to a larger roof and sling gear long. Pull roof on great holds (funky gear here - shallow #3 camelot) to easier ground. Be kind to the second and place a directional and continue to the top and lower from shared anchor of "Junk Show". Note: The directional also keeps the second from swinging the rope across a sharp edge at the roof.

Location

Start on, or just right of "Old Crow".

Offset nuts are quite helpful pulling the first roof. Dec 21, 2014

Pulling the first small roof requires some tricky gear. Tri-cams, nuts, and a 00 C3 really help to protect that move. Bring some longer slings (4') to keep the line running smooth since there are a few roofs and the route traverses almost the entire way. Jun 6, 2012
