Description

This double crack system up to the roof has 3 variations out said roofÂ… The Choice!

The leftmost route is 5.11, the middle and right are 10a? All three are tricky and keep you thinking!

Start with a few difficult face moves to reach the crack system. Head up crack for a bit, then step left to next crack. Go up to a dirty ledge. From here, there are two ways up the face. Up right or left will both bring you to the lone bolt on the face. Gear below the bolt is hard to see. Above the bolt, head up to roof and decide where to go.

Left is 11 out a stepped, overhanging, corner type thing.

Middle is just right of the bottom of the V that makes the roof. Look for hidden jug above roof and crack in the face. This could be hard for someone with a short wingspan.

Right is tricky and heads up another stepped, dihedral feature and an arete pinch above before heading up to the anchors.

I chose the right version, it's fun and well worthwhile. Some kind of 10- seems about right. Jun 24, 2014
