  • Description 

    This route climbs up to a right angling roof via some face moves. Once at the base of the small roof, traverse up and right with good hands and bad feet. After about 10 ft, it's possible to head up and over with some small holds, this is the crux and felt more like a .10 to me than a 9, but that may be because there's so much lichen on the rock! After this, run it out to the top. I thought the movements on this climb were really fun, but some bad rock towards the top, lack of gear, and all the lichen make this climb more of a stressful time than a good climb


    This is the first route you'll come to on North Rock, look for the low point of a small right angling roof and start there.


    There's not too much of it, the traverse takes large cams, I used a #4 and #3 Camalot, right before the crux, I got a micro nut, but my second may of knocked the rock with that placement off, so, you mainly just have those 2 big cams to protect the climb....
