Climb the offwidth under the huge chockstone and exit left. The exit right is Post Road (5.7).

2nd roof is called Blow Up (5.9). Makes a great 2nd mini-pitch for any of the Main Face routes. Protects well. Aug 16, 2016

The second larger roof above the ledge in the middle of the climb is an excellent exposed roof. I thought it was better than the first roof and definitely worth doing. A TR can be set from the trees above with a 60m rope. Aug 15, 2016

This is a tough finish. I led Post Road and then used the anchor to try this on top rope. So glad I was not on lead! That move to pull the roof is very challenging! Fun! I would call this "exposure" for a small single pitch crag. Aug 18, 2014
