Placing something before the roof section


On the right side of the crag, start near a tree on dry ground. Move left to a short dihedral and then left again underneath a roof. Pull over the roof, and you are in hiking territory once again. A fun but strange little route that is best to lead - it wanders too much to make toproping appealing.


Stoppers, maybe some cams to 1.5"

No fixed anchors, so bring your gear for the top also.

I think this route packs a lot of punch and some very cool climbing in a very short span. There are many different ways to approach the line, with many variations, each more or less difficult than the next. Led for sure, but one may rig a descent TR once you have decided which side you'll end up on at the top. I quite enjoyed the climbing here.
