Its Never Pretty aka Grovel Time

Description

This is the roof problem to the right of the obvious slab.

Sit start low and left on a small crimp edge. Make dynamic moves up and right, finishing directly up the arete on good holds.

The crux is groveling over the roof onto the arete off of terrible edges and slopers. If you're taller it makes it easier, but this little problem can be defeating.

Location

Triangular boulder up the hill and to the right of the main boulder at Canada Cliffs, up the hill from the Canada Cliffs Trail-Head.

Protection

Pads and spotters.
