Climb through the roof between Lion King and Call Me Bwana. All these routes have incredible holds at the roof then momentary difficulty getting your body over.


From Sun Tan Ledge, follow the bolts between Lion King & Call Me Bwana.


8 bolts to a shared anchor with Lion King.

I think this route is more difficult than Lion King, the 9+ to the left. Opinions do vary, but this is what I believe. I only gave this route a 8+ as a rating because I may be wrong. Then again, I thought Lion King was easier than 9+.
