  • Description 

    I added this as 5.5, in keeping with the original rating. But be advised that it feels more like 5.7 when you move around the roof.
    Starts out as double crack, jogs left around roof.


    2 cracks left of Not so Easy. Getting near the far north end.


    Gear to 4".Bolted anchor.

    The roof part is indeed hard, much harder than 5.5. The route was really fun overall.
