The moves up the bottom are a little tough, but finding the best holds helps a lot. Basically move straight up the crack/shallow corner system over here and when the crack runs out make some moves directly up the face to merge with the rounded arete on the right. Follow the arete to the horizontal crack right below the last headwall. From here follow the arete basically straight over the top.


Located on the right side of Land of the Overhangs. First route to the right of Hole in the Roof. Look for obvious crack in the broken/shallow inside corner system. There is a "fossilized vertabrae" feature about 20ft up on the right side of the corner.


This route has decent trad gear to half-way height, then two bolts followed by bomber gear for the top out. A bunch of fingers and smaller cam sizes are great for the bottom. A #2-3.5 cam or two for the top is also good. Top out to the trees or move left to the anchors of Hole in the Roof.
