Climb a face for two bolts, then move up into a discontinuous crack and a few more bolts to the bottom of a roof. Execute the oddball, lip encounter crux, and clip the anchors.


This is in the middle of the Opening Ceremony Wall about 20' right of a hip high, flat boulder that sits near the base.

Mellow juggy climbing to a weird finish. There is a hidden bolt on the right lip of the roof. Pulling through the roof always gives me fits, not sure why. This move is harder for me than anything on League of Nations, 11a, 50 feet to the left.

The majority of the route was juggy and fun. Pulling the lip was extremely awkward and difficult, and weighting the rope while hanging at the hidden bolt above the roof destroyed the dog-bone on my draw. Hang a long draw on that one.

Climb it like a crack climb, and it feels 10b. Not awkward. Necessary foot out left on the roof.
