Description 

A 30-ft rock with a couple of high quality lines: a technical bolted line, and a dihedral with a fun roof crack that goes on gear. Stays in the shade after mid-morning, and the crack has all-day shade.

Getting There 

Click the map link above for exact location. On the trail to the main hill, look to your right after about 5-10 minutes. You will see the rock (see beta photo below), with the obvious roof crack. Follow a path that takes off to the right towards it.

Save finger to hand-sized pieces (I used the orange, red and black Metolius Power Cams), for the anchor. From the anchor, there's about 10 feet of eas...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
