Bomber limestone with incredible features. Bad Ass is the sooper classic must-tick attraction, and Stinky Ass is tricky. There are also a couple linkups and variations. This roof can attract a crowd on weekends.

Getting There 

Follow the trail out Howard's Draw for a few minutes past the Island The roof is on the right, slightly up on the side of a hill. Approach time about 10 minutes from parking. Alternately, from Anorexic/Monster Roof walk across the draw and directly over the hill to descend almost on top of Bad Ass Roof - five minutes from Anorexic.

I believe there is some poison sumac in the "sitting area" at Bad Ass Roof. Try not to sit in it....its unpleasant.
