Description

The crux is sliding left out from under the roof. Try your luck with a heel hook and see what you're made of.

This is a 5 move wonder with the lower section on easy 5th class climbing.

Location

This is one of the first climbs you will encounter if you take the easy walk down trail from the top. Once you arrive at Fin Rock, take a right and you'll see the obvious L-shaped roof.

Protection

Set of smaller cams .3-.75 help with the roof crux.

Beta alert: see that maybe sloper maybe decent edge that you wish so badly were a jug while pulling the roof? just go for it.

While the roof isn't particularly hard, 5.6 is a bit of a sandbag in my opinion. A green c4 in the pod in the left roof crack protects the moves nicely though. Jul 19, 2015
