This is the second pitch of Roger's Corner. Take the obvious handcrack next to the tree. Straightforward, fun jams. You'll wish this went on for another 150 feet. A bonus is that it stays dry in the rain. There is an anchor on the ledge above, and you can toprope Marginal Karma, the 11b immediately to the right, from those bolts. You can also approach this from the top of GNS if you don't want to go up Roger's.


A few hand size pieces. You'll have enough from whatever you brought up Roger's.

Awesome route! Pumpy with stunning exposure. Goes from #0.75 Camalots to #3 Camalot. Two of each is more than enough. Warning: The crack has 'hollow' sounding sections which is a little creepy! We rappelled with a single 70m rope to the chains midway on Roger's Corner, and then another rappel to the ground. I don't think a 60m rope would have made the chains, but you could easily rappel to the belay tree, then to the chains, and then to the ground. Or just bring two ropes!

A 60m does barely make it to the chains midway up Roger's Corner, but be careful.

With good use of slings and a bunch of gear you can go from the ground up Roger's Corner and finish on Breakfast in one full 70m pitch.

Best done as one long pitch from ground, starting on RC, don't need a ton of gear. Doubles of mid size gear works aok. Extend slings on RC section to avoid drag. I used a 70 m rope with plenty to spare, my partner counted remaining rope and thinks was about 55m for the pitch.
