BETA PHOTO: The start hands to "Coho" (v-3)


the Salmon roof is loaded with mega quality jug rails from bottom to top-out and the warm-up problem that goes with it couldn't be more perfect to start the day with: "Pink Salmon" (V-1).
this wall is also super lengthy to climb out of (15 feet), but the landing is rarely over 5 feet off the ground thanks to the angle of the stone "porch/patio" below it. there is also a great quality line on the right of the face called "coho" (v-3)
The "dark seam" that vertically separates the face of the warm up roof (can be clearly viewed in the pictures) is a divider between "Pink Salmon"(v-1) and "coho"(v-3).

Getting There 

walk past the "speakeasy" wall and walk through the pass created by the gap between the "Speakeasy wall" and the "Tavern Wall". walk directly toward the "maxima" arete boulder. walk to the left of "maxima" and into the corridor with the gigantic overhang. this is the warm-up roof.
