Mat pulling under the roof


This climb is not located on the main artist bluff cliff. It is on a huge boulder on the bald knob ridge trail. Start under the roofs right side, with a high foot and a hand on the slab.Pull onto the slab to the crack . Clip the bolts and pull over the roof (crux) to the top placing gear if desired.


To locate this climb hike past the artist bluff climbers trail, and once the trail splits go to the left in the direction of bald knob. You will see a very large boulder on your left. This climb starts under the right hand side of the roof.


Three bolts... optional BD.5 for the run out up top.

The crux might feel easier for taller climbers, while being stuffed under the roof is easier for shorter ones. A consensus on the grade would be grate.
