The roof


Unprotected boulder moves on pretty good kitty litter will get you to the base of the roof. From here the granite is splitter. Get yourself situated and get some gear. A 3.5 with a draw works well here. From a bomber right hand undercling hand jam reach out and place a .75 cam. You could place bigger gear but it would have to go in the jams.

Jam some tight hand jams before getting to a sinker around the lip. Place another .75 in the narrowest section below the lip. Find the foot jams and keep bumping those jams up the now hand sized crack.

Continue to the top on a licheny crack or lower off from above the lip.


Just left of Roofer's Madness

AKA "Gang Bang" reportedly due to the fact that it took many attempts from many attemptees before Hartrich finished the climb.
