First Crux after the roof

Writing in chalk MORE INFO >>>


This route climbs impeccable stone, very similar to that of the Travisty wall at Beauty Mountain. The rock is sparsely featured, with some major vertical and horizontal breaks cleaving through the surface. Be prepared to pull some deep lock offs on small crimps and pockets to get from one horizontal ledge to the next. Expect really good rests split by hard technical face climbing. If face climbing is your forte you'll be well prepared for this route, but you'll still have to pull out the guns for the first two bolts of horizontal roof climbing.

Stick clip the first and second bolts appropriately so the climber doesn't deck if they fall on the intro roof section.


This route starts deep back in a cave above a smooth rocky surface. The anchors are below a roof.


9 bolts plus anchor.

Absolutely 5star route. Diverse, strong, great rests...just classic. Narcissus is a POS next to this! The quality of the stone is impeccable and I can't believe I just came here for the first time after climbing at the nrg for 16 years.
