Howl Roof

5.12, Trad, 105 ft,  Avg: 2 from 1 vote
FA: Jeff Achey
Colorado > Glenwood Springs > Main Elk Creek > Main Elk Crag

Description

The bottom is a little R-rated as the 1st bolt is about 25' up past really chossy rock. I climbed up 5' and stick clipped it. The crux is exiting the offwidth squeeze roof and doing a couple campus moves to stand up on the ledge. It has an awesome finish! Howl after the send!

Location

On the middle of the main prow, this ascends the obvious crack to the roof.

Protection

Bring cams: 1-#0.4, 1-#0.5, 2-3 #0.75s, 4-#1s, 1-#2, 1-#3, draws/runners, 1 bolt, and 1 fixed nut. There's actually non-big gear in that roof/squeeze!
