Steep and dirty climbing up a corner to a roof with pockets.


This is the fourth route from the left side of the wall. The route starts in a dirty light grey colored corner with a shallow crack in it.

Crappy climbing to a great finish. Most people appear to clip the 4th bolt by climbing up and right and then traversing back left to pull the roof. It's worth doing this route just to pull the roof moves.

this was an interesting route. its dirty and there are two crack climbs on each side of it, so its hard to spot/stay on route. for a true 5.11 stay on the face, holds/moves are there. I ended up climbing up to the right, clipping the roof, then coming down to do the sequence.. took me a while to figure that out and spot the actual route.. the roof is actually alot of fun if done right. kinda a confusing route.

This route is not hard unless you make it that way on purpose. The bolting is poor as had to leave obvious stances 2 times to make the clip. It is almost like a tall person bolted this and said how far can I reach up from this stance. Something about climbing up on the right to protect the move then traversing down and left to then climb through 3 moves is less than stellar.
