Moving through the roof on Pickpocket. May 2009
This stout line is rated 11b in most of the guides, but with a reachy, sequential roof crux, this will feel quite a bit harder for shorter climbers. Excellent, devious slabbing on immaculate stone leads to a good rest just below the roof. From here, purists will power up and left over the lip, to an easier though pumpy slab finish. It may be possible to avoid the main difficulties by veering far right at the roof.
Immediately right of OMS
Bolts. Stick clip recommended. Possible to TR, but tricky.
