Description 

A slabby start forces you to not place any protection for the first 15-20 ft of the climb. After placing your first piece, continue up the obvious line to the right of the first roof-feature seen. The crux of the climb comes just underneath the first roof, as the shrubbery growing out of the small finger crack makes it hard to secure a good jam. Continue ~60 ft up the route to the second (and final) roof. Traverse left with some extreme exposure and finish out the final 10 ft with awesome hand jams!

Location 

Shares start with Frito Bandito. Stay to the right of the first roof-feature.

Protection 

Pro to 2.5"
Protects really well with .4-2 C4 ranges and one set of nuts will get you safely to the top!
