Description

There is only one really good hold on the overhang, feel around or just go for it and try your luck.

Location

Not in the Exit38 guidebook. Left of Ellie's Sweet kiss (10a). The route goes up and over the overhang and then it's a stroll to the chains.

Fun route! The bottom moves are very easy if you are tall, but going over the edge of the roof is very hard. I ended up just throwing myself over and crawling sideways, cause there was no way to compress my legs to anywhere on the edge with my arms still on the same edge (or maybe I didn't find THE good hold past the lip).

Hey Frank,

Climbed this yesterday and came across this post looking for the rating. I would agree with the c/d rating, although short. Two really fun cruxes with the first being hardest. The roof pull was really fun, and reminded me of the Bone in Leavenworth.

thanks for setting it. Jun 6, 2010

Yeah worked on this with Leland W. in 08. It was bolted on lead/A0, in the rain, wind and a 35 degree winter day so yeah some of em are close together.. but they all ended up being good placements for leading. The start is tricky especially for shorties like me. I was torn on the grade to give it really.... Leland wanted to call it 11a and I thought it had some hard 10+ moves. So far the general concensus is 10c/d. Super fun short route, the roof pull makes it worth it. Called "Hurricane" I'd like to hear what more people think... cheers Jan 12, 2010
