Getting past the lip of the roof is very difficult; a tcu could be placed in the crack if necessary to help you feel better about clipping the bolt past the lip. Cranking over the roof is easier if a foot jam overhead is used.


Look for the obvious roof with a crack in it.


all bolts plus one tcu maybe.

Anytime you use a footjam over your head it's hella cool (I think)... Therefore I neeeeed to try this route.

Clipping the third bolt is a scary proposition, even with the fixed draw in place. There may be potential for a groundfall. That said I did not look for supplemental gear.

My solution to pulling the roof was more traditional. I'll have to go back to try the overhead footjam. A wild roof no matter how you pull it!

I placed a cam in one of the slots to make clipping the perma-draw more comfortable and then took out the cam. Probably easier than Submission and La Nariz just because the route is over once you complete the roof, but who knows ... it was certainly fun to do.

The fixed draw has a few broken strands of wire on it. Perhaps it should be replaced with a chain?

I tried to keep the fixed draw a bit less visible at the time. A chain would suffice but I will probably use the same fixed draw type. Thanks for the heads up.
