DescriptionThis is a fantastic crack climb, even though it is fairly short. Jam the overhanging crack making use of some face features when possible. Once you reach the roof, plug a high piece and find the crucial holds/jams to pull over the lip.
This is a 5.11a in Mark "Indy" Kochte's "Climb Maryland!" guide, but only a 5.10d in the Horst Falcon Guide.
ProtectionEats hand and and fist sized gear (#3 & #4 C4 or large hexes). Doubles are helpful unless you are comfortable backcleaning/bumping gear. For the roof a large nut, small hex, or medium cam would probably work.
You can easily set up a natural anchor on a boulder on the top. There are some bolts up and to the right of the top out, but I do not think they would work well for a top rope setup.
