Closed to climbing March 15 - June 30 MORE INFO >>>


Slab climb past a bolt to a three foot horizontal roof. Pull the roof using the namesake crystals. Ascend near vertical face using knobs and edges until a respite ledge. From the ledge follow a featured seam before transitioning back onto the face. Devious technical climbing continues to a massive chickenhead at the finish.

Crystal Roof is a nice route with slab, roof, and face climbing. The rock is generally solid. Many will dislike the slab and roof but I enjoyed the variety. That the route provides numerous full recovery rests detracts from the quality but makes the send more feasible.


Crystal Roof is located on the southeast corner of The Ravelin, the lowest point of the crag. The first three bolts are shared with Crystal Ball. Crystal Roof is the left branch.


14 bolts to anchor. Lower anchors have been added; one can now easily rappel off this route; walking is no longer required.
