I love this climb


This is a good fun little aid line or a wild dynamic free climb. Start at the top of the amphitheater in Storm Mountain picnic area. There are two lines through the roof, this is the left line (obviously). To the right is Amphitheater Overhang Right, A1; the gully to the left is the start of The Flake, 5.5.

I haven't sent it free, so I will comment from an aid perspective. Great roof sequence past several fixed pins and bolts over the lip and then up to a two-bolt anchor. This is a great place to practice aiding through roofs, and over bulges.


Free: mostly just several draws. There are other placements if you want them with thin gear.

Aid: small rack, mostly thin.

The first bolt is halfway on the roof, which is way to high. I didn't see anywhere to place pro before that. Right before and after the first bolt there are extremely rusted pitons (don't use)
