This is the left most route at We Did Rock. The start goes over a few bulges with OK hand holds. As you approach the top of the climb, there are some delicate slab moves where technique and balance are required.


Bolts to a two bolt anchor with rappel rings.

I climbed this some time mid 2000's, anyone know who bolted it? I seem to remember using some trad gear.

I saw multiple leaders going left up the corner above the 2nd bolt to bypass the hard roof move. Looks like it would be a dicey swinging fall onto a ledge, and requires a slab traverse to get back on route and clip the 3rd bolt.

I suggest pulling the roof directly or backing off.
