From a sit or crouch on the right side of the roof, with your right hand in a good slot and left on a low undercling, pull on and climb leftwards across the lip of the roof finishing on the left side of the far arete. The seam 2 feet above the lip was not used so instead of mantling out early you climb out the whole feature.
This is definitely one of my favorite of the grade (whatever it ends up being) I have done at the lake.


The El Parasol roof, just above the fat raccoon boulder.


3 pads, spotter, though I did it w/ 2 and no spotter.

Back off, Tyler. Don't you have some problems in CO to comment on? I have seen this massive line in person and it would take some serious balls to do it with two pads and no spotter, balls that Ian clearly has. Sep 18, 2014
