BETA PHOTO: "Asthar Roof"--fun climb


Left of "Teflon" is an obvious seam leading to a roof. Technical moves on smooth rock lead up the seam to a crux move gaining the sloping ledge below the roof. Surmounting the roof is not as hard as it may appear. Unlike many nearby climbs which can be bouldered reasonably safely with modern crashpads, this would be a very bad one to try and climb without a toprope and it therefore doesn't see a lot of traffic. Fun climb nevertheless.


Setting a toprope on this is a little tricky as the cracks and flakes above are not of the greatest quality. Equalize a variety of pieces and use long slings.
