Description 

There is a lot of variety packed into this long pitch. An easy start, a roof to surmount, a long corner providing great stemming, a short but tricky bolt protected traverse and to finish off this test of endurance - a burly crack section. Watch out for rope drag.

Location 

At the X Wall look for a big roof about 50 feet off the deck. The route starts just above a large spruce tree in the corner system below the roof.

Protection 

Standard rack to 3". Maybe double up from .5 to #1 camalots. One bolt protects a techy traverse. Bolted rappel stations get you to the ground.

Best route that I've climbed at McQuirks and one of NB's best route!

FYI - A 70 M rope does not get you back to the ground. You will have to downclimb about 15 feet of 5.0. Tie Knots at the end of your rope!
