Hard parts over

Description 

Work up the left side of the amphitheater under the large roof on sharp cracks and underclings. Tread lightly and pull through the obvious crack on the left end of the roof and straight up the slab and face above. This climb would be worth two stars if it were longer.

Location 

Right of "Locals Only" and left of the start of "Layback Route" is a long roof created by a mysteriously hanging 2' high x 20' long x 7' deep death flake. The route starts in the left side of the small amphitheater and pulls through the left side of the flake/roof.

Protection 

Protects well with small cams and a mid-large stopper or two.

Another large Longstack roof with hidden holds that climbs at a surprisingly easy grade.

Well when you hit it with your palm the whole thing vibrates, I mean the big roof. It’s very lose and scary its safe enough but I still don’t trust it.
