Description 

This arched roof looks really sweet and the crux looks pretty tough. The start follows a low angle ramp and corner up to an almost vertical/slightly overhung offwidth section, then a layback crack in the roof traverses left about 30 ft. After that you can move around the roof and follow another short crack/scramble to the top of the formation. For rope drag reasons I would belay at the end of the traverse, then make the short climb to the top. I've made it part-ways through the roof traverse but never completed the climb.

  • *This route isn't actually named and I have no idea how accurate the rating is. If anyone has info feel free to email me and I will update this! Thanks

Location 

About 50 yards left of Layback and Relax.

Protection 

Handsize or smaller gear on the ramp, #3.5 camalot or bigger for the crux, then handsize pieces in the roof for the traverse over.
