BETA PHOTO: Proving Grounds roof (seen from SE), in sector Car...


Fun roof sequence. If only this were longer.

Find the easiest way up through the low roof, and up a little to a slanted rest just below a small overhanging prong by the left end of the big obvious roof. Next up the left side of the prong.
. Variation: Up the right side of the prong (harder and less fun).
. Variation: Diagonal out left from the prong (easier and still fun).
Finish up easier slab.

warning: The rock on and around this route has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.


Low roof below left end of the obvious bigger "Proving Grounds" roof.

Standard rack for Trad leading.
Above the roof is run-out unprotectable but much easier than the lower part.

Top-Rope is straightforward to set up.
