Description

Compression roof moves to a very slopey arete then rock over the slab and tip toe up 8 feet of mossy, low angle slab.

Sit start with left hand under roof and right hand on the arete. Squeeze the arete and flake to a decent hold on the arete. Throw a high heel, and negotiate the slopey arete- gunning for a nice rail at the base of the slab. Haul yourself over the lip, and enjoy some friction slab to the top.

Nice problem to work alone. Stand start might be V4.

Location

Down the hill from Alzheimer's. On river side(North)of boulder.

Protection

Pads. Landing is perfectly flat.

Really fun roof problem. Start is hardest move, but the arete holds aren't much better. Used all sorts of heel hook shenanigans to fight my way to the top. Fun little problem. 5 days ago
