Description

Rue Morgue Avenue is a complex route. P1 95ft, 5.11. P2 is 110ft going to the left up the big chimney, 5.11. P2a is 110 ft going right up the big chimney from the belay (5.12ish around the obvious roof). P1. Start up the finger crack that splits the face directly below the huge roof. When finger crack ends, climb blocky steep thin cracks to the large ledge¬ólook for a pin to the right of the dihedral about 80 feet up. The rock gets better as the climb goes along. P2. Climb the hand crack through the roof just left of the belay, aiming for the left side of the roof. Climb fat hands to the roof, traverse left on good holds; exit up to an easy groove. P2a. Step right, climb the finger crack to the OW to the roof. Hard moves past the roof, clip a pin, jugs to fingers to hands.

Location

The roof is pretty easy to spot. It's huge, about two hundred feet up from the end of the cliff.

Protection

P1: 2-3 each from 0-#1. Set nuts; RPs useful.
P2: 2# 1s, 3 #2s, 3-4 #3s, a few #0.5 to #0.75 cams can protect the roof traverse.
P2a: Doubles fingers to #3, 1-#5 for the OW. A purple TCU can protect before the pin.
