The roof is pretty easy.


Parade of Fools is a great route of face climbing that will leave you wanting more like the 10c just to the left. This is sustained.


Start about the middle of the face near a broken rock at base. The big tree will not be standing much longer.


10 bolts, one #1 Camalot, & wired nuts. Rap the route on a 70m, it just makes it.

The route length is at least 125 feet (~35m). We rapped from the top (two-bolt anchor) with a 70m rope, sliding off of the ends while sitting down onto the juniper bush at the start, thanks to rope stretch.

Two bolt anchors with no chains or rings. We rapped from the anchors on top of One No-Trump. Ok route with more than one crux.
