Boojum Roof

5.10+, Trad, 80 ft,  Avg: 3 from 1 vote
FA: D. Sampson, B. Burgess, J. Garcia, M. Rangel, J. Cohen
Arizona > Central Arizona > Isolation Canyon > Main Wall - South

Description

The low roof is the crux; it goes easier with one side over the other side of your body.

Location

As you pass Dave Christenson Memorial Route you will see the next overhung arete 50' south;this is the arete with Mellow Yellow on the south side. This crack, on north side of that buttress, starts just above the Snake Tree (photo in guide) and heads to a low roof then a higher roof (much easier, head straight up). Reach the chains for Mellow Yellow.

Protection

Single rack to #4 camalot, nuts, slings

We had a much easier time where Joe is now; the crux was below him a bit.
