Face moves to gain thin crack leading up to left-facing corner and up to the roof. Left across roof and over. Follow same crack to the terrace top.


Located on the right side of Outward Bound Slab. Descend by down scrambling to climber's right. Or continue to top via AC/DC or Tres Fun and down scramble as for those routes.


Pro to 3" (optional 4"), gear anchor.

This route, as shown in the Bartlett guide, turns the roof to the right and follows the thin crack straight up. The crack reached by traversing left under the roof can be climbed directly from the ground at 5.7 or 5.8.

Worthwhile if you are climbing in the area, lots of sun. Turning over the roof is fun.
