A fun route with interesting, balancey moves. Weird, because the rig overhangs about 35-40 degrees, but it's technical and tricky. The redpoint crux is clipping the anchor. But the best part is that is is ALWAYS dry for both climber and belayer because of the huge roof overhead. Bring some sticky shoes you like to smear with. To get there, take a right at the base of the Upper Town Wall and follow the trail along the base. In about 5 minutes, you will reach the huge A Frame roof overhead. You can't miss it. It's the leftmost steep sport route in the alcove to the right.


Closely spaced bolts.

Was out there yesterday. The quicklinks on the anchor are rusted as were the bolts holding in the hangars. All of the permadraws appeared to be fine. Couldn't hurt for someone with a little more experience with bolting and the hardware to take a peak at it.

12c in the guidebook. 13a here. Might be 12d with some funky shoulder scum beta. A good route and a solid send

This route is chipped as is its neighbor La Bomba Roof. Still fun boulder problem type routes that need more traffic.
