DescriptionThis roof line would be 4 stars with no hesitation if it were only a few feet higher off of the ground. There is plenty of clearance here, but to avoid dabbing the pads you do have to tuck you feet instantly. That being said, the climb is fantastic!
Sit start as per "Welcome" but off of the start hold climb directly out of the roof. Follow crimps, slots, and jugs out. Exit the roof to the left of the huge Hemlock (left of tree when looking at the boulder from the river).
Follow interesting holds and iron ripples to top out direct.
-Please inspect the jug holds for bats. On the FA of this line I needed to avoid one hold as to not disturb a happy little bat.
-For peace of mind, build a river landing out of drift wood near the boulder to guard any possible top out fall.
