Finishing the crux roof....


The route is located on the MBA Buttress. It is the prominent, left-facing dihedral just right of Table Manners and left of Dan's Line aka Restless Heart. It climbs the roof crack out left of Table Manners' last two bolts then turns right to gain the anchors.


Protection is abundant. A #0.75 Camalot protects the roof. A small nut or RP protects the final moves to the two bolt anchor.

Bad Manners is the logical flow of the Table Manners route, done as Nevada indicates. The roof can be done for probably 5.11d by running the crack and flake on the left until over the roof. This is followed by a step over giving rise to a two bolt sport variation of a natural trad line.
