Description

Start on the left side of the Roots boulder wall on the long continuous diagonal flake on a jug. Traverse the flake all the way across the wall, gaining height as you go, once the flake ends, top out up and right on good holds next to a tree. Great holds the whole way, high at the end but not overly so, a nice line.

Location

On the Roots boulder, starting on the left side.

Protection

A line of pads across the boulder.
