Howie sets up for the dyno to the Hero Roof

Description 

A nice boulder to get started on. On the north face you'll find 'Hero Roof' v0, which is not quite a roof but more of an overhanging juggy warm-up. There's also a section of slabby patina to get the fingers going and some tougher moderates on grainy slopers.

Getting There 

From the Birthday Boulders parking area, walk east about 50 yards past the Pope's Hat Boulder and Boy and Girl Rocks until you reach the overhanging face on your right. The trail goes directly under 'Hero Roof'.

Climbing Season

For the Buttermilks Main area.

One of the best warm-ups in the 'Milks. A couple laps on this will get the blood flowing on those crisp mornings.Sit-start low on big patina edges on the right side of the overhanging face, then work your way up and left along the lip of the roof on good jugs.
