Description

Climb a fun lieback crack on a slightly overhangging wall above the 2nd pitch of Wherever I May Roam. Once you pull over the lip, the steepness eases but the fun continues. Follow the bolts up to the base of a very overhanging wall on good face holds. Watch out of loose rocks at the anchor. This is a variation just before the traverse 3rd pitch of Wherever I May Roam, if you continue up No Pain No Gain (5.11 overhanging tips crack) you will merge back to the 4th pitch anchor.

Location

Climb the first 2 pitches of Wherever I May Roam, the bolted line on a slightly overhanging crack should be visible from the belay anchor. It should be directly above the first bolt on the 3rd pitch of Wherever I May Roam. You can rap back to the second belay of WIMR with a 60m - knot the ends because it's pretty close to 30m

Protection

10 bolts with bolted anchor and rap rings, good idea to extend the last draw.

Choss and sand? Welcome to Smith Rock. This is one of the cleaner, less traveled routes. Nov 5, 2017

The choss and sand on this route seriously detract from the fun factor. Jul 12, 2017

The couple of flake jugs after the last bolt sounded quite hollow, don't pull on them Oct 9, 2014
