DescriptionIt's easy to be brave above a bolt.
Try it... See if the old West Virginian adage is true for you too!
Using a sidepull for your right hand balance your way up to 2 big pockets under the roof. Undercling then crimp to get your hands above the roof. Heel hook or thrutch up over the roof. After clearing the roof follow easy ground to the anchors.
v1: variation traverses left under the roof before going up.
LocationFollowing the cliff band to the right and around the corner from Crotalid, you will come to a section under a huge roof. This is the leftmost of the three bolted routes under the roof. These bolts are easy to spot when you're below them. This route is about 10' left of Dirty V.
