I enjoyed leading this route and thought the name was pretty appropriate.

Thin slab climbing up and right past a bolt leads to a small roof and a welcomed jug. Fiddle in some un-inspiring little gear in a thin rotten seam and pull the roof to jugs.

Ground fall potential getting to and surmounting the roof.


This is the right most route on the northwest slab with one obvious bolt. Walk off to the west.


One bomber bolt, small brass nuts and couple small tcu's. With all that gear, you should be able to find something up there if you fiddle about long enough. Small to medium cams for gear belay.
