Description

aka The Miracle Project, aka the Route to Nowhere, aka Christmas Miracle, aka Sweet Baby Jesus

Originally envisioned by Heady Ethan who put in the first three bolts on lead but was dissuaded by the improbable grips out the 12 ft roof. Deemed a "miracle" if it went, or a route that went nowhere. Later, the line was rebolted and brought to the top of the cliff yielding another hard and beta intensive limestone rig characteristic of Lone Rock routes.

Some trivial climbing leads to a hard 3rd clip. Charge into the roof crux (about v8 or 9 in entirety) with some powerful moves to gain the rail in the roof. Using tenuous and tedious footwork, establish on the rail and use limestone wizardry to clip the 4th bolt. After surging through the roof exit, chill on a jug before embarking on a more reasonable but heartbreaking v5 redpoint crux

Location

The route left of the B.I.B.L.E that climbs the 12 ft horizontal roof at about 20ft.

Protection

6 bolts and an anchor
