DescriptionDownstream from Aqualung is corner up to a roof.
Climb the corner to the roof, turn the roof (crux) and if you get the gear right, continue to the top. If instead, you runner your gear short, as I did, then your rope drag will be horrendous and I ended up belaying on the slopes above the roof. Thus a 2 pitch route at the forks.
Actually the climb to the roof and getting over the roof is good. Turning the roof seemed tricky.
On the "2nd" pitch, a fist size rock was knocked off and beaned me in the head, requiring a few stiches (pre helmet days, unless you count the pumpkin sized Joe Browns. There's more to this story but that's going to cost someone some beers since it's somewhat embarassing and involved.
After a few ascents, the rest of whatever is loose should clean up.
My recollection is that the second bit is 5.8 which partially accounts for my lack of attention that day.
You can also climb out to the right on lower angle ramps.
There might be a decent easy route in the corners to the right of the roof and up to the ramp?
LocationCan't recall just how far down stream. Not all that far and it's the most obvious roof in the area.
