Description 

Often called the best Sport Route Oklahoma. Climbs the low angle ramp up into the unrelenting roof section that does not let up until you reach the chains. No move is harder than 5.10, the arm pump is what kills.

Location 

Cross the creek and look right for the notorious roof. Belay from the boulder across the stream when water is high.

Protection 

One cam to protect the face moves to the 1st bolt and chains up top

Probably one of the best sport routes in Oklahoma! Classic jug haul through two roofs is too much fun!

I believe the first cam placement before the bolt is a 0.75 (but could be one size larger or smaller).
