Description [Edit]

Roaring Lion makes its way up Pigeon Stool Wall in two pitches just right of Center. Has nice south facing exposure.

Start climbing in the corner behind the large fir. Follow a couple bolts up and left to go around the arete. Follow bolts up the arete to a nice belay ledge. Two bolts and cable anchor. Pitch two takes you up a short face with two bolts. Then cover easy terrain up a small face with one bolt before the chain anchors.

Pitch 1 has the better climbing with Pitch 2 just a means to the top of the wall.

Location [Edit]

Just Right of center, behind a large fir tree in the corner. Shares a start with Pigeon Stool and Light out of Darkness.

Protection [Edit]

8 Bolts
Single Rack to 1"

Tricky start! First 15' is thin feet and flexy handholds to a decent cam. Another 10' to the first bolt. The rest of the climb is great rock and good pro. May 14, 2016
