Me on the FA, about to turn the lip

Description 

The obvious roof crack on the Seven. Better left (more fun) as a Top Rope problem, though it has been climbed on lead. If you do choose to lead it, realize that apparently perfect placements might rip out of the soft, fractured, crystalized cracks and fall at the lip may be bad.

Climb up to the crack (easy), make some painful jams (hard), crank the lip (crux 1) and follow the crack up the face. Two-thirds of the way, you'll encounter another, more technical, crux.

Location 

Can't miss it if you find the Seven.

Protection 

Bring a looonngg cordelette for through over the lip on the bolts for the anchor. This rock could easily saw the sheath off of your rope if you don't get it running clean enough.

If you choose to lead it, you'll need a couple of #1 and #2 BD Camalots and one each .5 and .75 in addition to draws and runners.

This climb,.. is well worth the trip. Whether one opts for a rope from above or below, the variety of climbing encountered for a short route,.. is in a word,..astounding. It is appropriate, that local talent Colby Wayment bagged the FFA lead of this cool pitch. It is a fine addition to the fun and varied rock routes in the Ogden area.
