Description

Takes a surprisingly easy line directly through the center of the large roof feature on the far right of the cliff. Should become a popular beginner route as it is now thoroughly cleaned, has great protection, and exciting moves on big holds.

P1: From the beech tree at the start of Rona's Roof, face climb straight up (fixed pin on left) then passing climbers right of a small tree, then directly up to a stance under the large roof. Place pro and fire over the roof on huge holds to an easy, broken slab. Pine tree belay with fixed rap station. 70', 5.6

P2: Continue straight up the broken slab to a shared pine tree anchor atop Trifecta. 50', 5.5

Location

Starts as for Rona's Roof, on a sloping ledge behind a beech tree. Rap the route in two raps from large trees equipped with cord and quick links.

Protection

Trad rack to 2 1/2" cams; one fixed pin to protect the start. Fixed tree anchors on both pitches. Great gear all the way.

Named for the howling of coyotes and the brief storm prior to the first ascent. The rap off was done in a steady rain. Jul 26, 2012

Although listed as two pitches, this climbs best as one pitch, extending slings as needed. A 70M rope, thrown directly over the route, will just get you to the ground. Alternatively, the listed first pitch belay tree is fully equipped with a quadrupled runner and quick links. Aug 8, 2012

We climbed this again the other night by headlamp under the crescent moon and full compliment of stars, and this thought came up in conversation: Is this the best single pitch of 5.6 in NH? Sep 24, 2012

I think so I have done a lot of 5.6 pitches and I can't think of a better one. Sep 24, 2012

Really enjoyed the climb - but thought the roof moves were much harder than 5.6. Maybe it just exploits an old guys weakness. And maybe its a "how tall you are" thing too. I'd say 5.8- Jul 14, 2013

I think the roof move definitely favors taller people. I'm 6'3" and have no issues with it, my 5'3" girlfriend definitely struggles at the roof.

Awesome route, did both pitches today, first time I was on it I only did the first pitch. Jul 21, 2013

Fantastic climb, my first trad lead climb. Easy climbing separated by a committing pull over the ledge. Beautiful views from the tree anchors. A green Black Diamond cam placed in the first horizontal crack above the lip helped to ease the fear of taking a fall onto the ledge beneath the overhang.

Hats off to those who developed this area... the hard work is quite evident. Oct 14, 2014

The rap tree on top is not long for this world, it was visibly swaying as my partner rapped off it and the trunk is full of woodpecker holes. May 1, 2017

Second time I did this route and "found" the "5.6 way" to do the move sequence at the roof. Jul 9, 2018
