Pulling through the roof.


A good and probably often overlooked canyon moderate. Climbing is mostly 5.6-5.7 with one fun section of 5.8 roof. Start in a right facing corner, move up through a cruxy bulge using face holds and a finger crack to gain a ledge below the roof. Pull the large roof using a hand crack and good foot holds then romp up the corner to the top of the buttress.


This route starts at the toe of the first buttress

Watch for chossy broken loose rock on the left wall. I was leading up this, and no joke, as I was uttering the words "Man, there's some loose stuff here, hope none of these holds brea-!!" Took about a 10-12' grounder. Roof is awesome! Bomber pro too. Bring some tiny cams for a small section above the roof.
