Da roof!

Description 

Start at the base of the arete, left of a large deep chimney/ gully. Climb up the arete for three bolts making a traverse left, up into a small layback flake. From here, varied face climbing leads to a small sloping ledge below a roof. Climb out the roof on good holds, to a balance crux. Finish up on edgy face to the anchor and lower off with 70m rope.

Location 

This route starts on a prominent wall, left of a large chimney/ shaft weakness. Approach up mixed trail, and large talus, which tops out on a dirt path that leads right. Continue up more large talus to the base of the wall. A roof is noted in the middle of the pitch. This formation is one of a few that encompass the whole G.o.T Crag.

Protection 

11 bolts
