At the 11d crux!

This is a high quality line with great movement on solid rock.

P1 (5.10c): Follow bolt line to a roof with anchors. This is a great pitch by itself and many people only do this pitch.

P2 (5.11d or 5.9 C1) Pull the roof on crimps and sidepulls to good incut flakes protected by bolts. The step slightly right into a Flared crack with good jams in the back of it. Exit the crack left at the top on good edges.


Left of the dental bill and right of the the Blue Roof.


14 draws and two cams (#1, #2, or #3 BD) if you do it as one pitch. Otherwise the 1st pitch is 7 QD + anchor.
