Stepping over the roof.

Description 

Best route on the wall curently. This is the bolted route to the far right on the other side of the major crack/roof. It's the only set of bolts and chains currently on the right side, although there's certainly plenty of rock to add more routes.

Starts on a crimpy bare section leading to the crux roof. Plenty of bolts provide adequate protection. Staying left after the roof is easier but more chossy. Staying right after the roof is more challenging and probably ups the grade.

Location 

Park on Memphis St and walk up Red Rock drive. You'll either have to brave the ravine or cross a private driveway to get into the canyon. About 15 minute hike up the canyon and you'll see the unmistakable cliff on the south (left hand) side. This route is the last set of bolts and chains on the far right.

Protection 

5 bolts and rap chains
