Center Left Roof

Description

Interesting moves up to a wild "indoor" style pull over the roof. If only this were longer.

Start about 5 ft left from below 2-inch-wide crack on underside of roof. Go up between irregular "geometric" block about 10-15 ft up and left-slanting block whose left "point" is 17-20 ft up. Before reaching roof, angle right up ramp to get under the crack. Pull the roof.

. . . (? variation project: go over the roof at the weakness a few feet to left of this crack).

warning: The rock on and near this route has not been climbed much yet, and some of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber or someone setting up top anchor.

. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2018. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).

Location

See 2-inch-wide crack on underside of roof (with protruding horn above left) a bit left of the center of roof. Start about 5 ft left from below that crack.
