David Merin tries to figure it out.


It is a real roof crack with finger locks and hand jams. More of a roped boulder problem than a climb. Low angle climbing leads to a 7ft. roof crack. Figuring out how to turn the lip might leave you hanging.


About 200 ft. west of Bownorthman and Bare Ass Rocks. There is a tower between the two (Reaching Out Tower) with a route on it. The climb is on the short wall up hill from RO tower


Small cams to hand size.

Got on this thing today. Turning the lip felt pretty easy, reaching the first handjam, however, felt hard. I'm 5'9" and the best way to get to it was to dyno (which is pretty damn painful). There might be some better beta that I missed, and I'll definitely get on it at least once more. The roof protects on all finger-sized pieces, but you'll probably want at least one #1 and #2 to build an anchor.
