Crimpin' Chris


Leatherface is a beautiful orange and brown roof with incut crimps. Start sitting on the far right on a big jug, and awkwardly make your way left, and then straight out the roof to a cruxy top-out. The top out is not more than eight feet off the ground. Bring some shoulder strength!

Personally, I think it's more fun to start on the left side sitting with the small crimps, but I wouldn't put the ascent down on your 8a.poo page if you do it this way.


Just downhill from The Power Roof (Orbital Mechanics) and The Practice Boulder. Look for a beautiful overhanging orange and brown wall.

Starting on the right felt contrived. I like the recommendation to start on the left. I will try this next time!

So rather than starting all the way to the right I started on the large tooth directly to the left of it, matching with a foot on the start and the other flagging, I personally found it to be a whole lot more fun than just starting on the crimps or the ridiculously dumb original start.

I've also heard rumors that this problem has been chipped out since the FA, does anyone know anything else about this?
