A real fun route that follows a crack to a large, funky roof.

Begin off the ground and fire the direct, steep start or work you way up and in from the left, either way, get up and gain composure on a small ledge. Follow the more continuous, larger, vertical crack up until you meet the base of the roof. A little bit of shuffling and maybe some grunting leads to a bolt at the routes crux, crank on and enjoy the view.


Lake Effect shares the right side of Cliff Lake with Gobslutch


A single rack of nuts and cams up to two inches, slings and a few draws. Chain anchor.

A great pitch put up by two great climbers. Beautiful rock on the crack.
