Trish Exiting the Roof into the awesome Hand Crack

  • Temporary Closure (From April 28, 2017) MORE INFO >>>
  • Seasonal Raptor Closure MORE INFO >>>

  • Description 

    Wander up the low angled start to the easy offwidth. Up the offwidth to the base of the the roof. Angle up and right thru the roof. Follow the sweet handcrack up the face and left at the end to the chains. While surmounting the roof is the crux its way easier than it looks.


    Near the left edge of the main wall its a few columns left of Inca Roads. A 60m rope will get you down, a 50m would get you to easily downclimbable terrain


    Pro to 4 inches is more than adequate altho you could put bigger stuff in if you wanted to.

    There's also a direct start on the pillar below the roof, starting on the right side of the pillar and crossing over to the left. You can see the last two bolts (out of five) in the pic. FA: Andy Fitz & Ed Mosshart, 2008. Probably 9+/.10- and fun (much better than the OW start IMO). You can either finish w/ the Render Us Weightless roof or move right under the roof to finish on Ball & Chain (.10a finger crack). Both finishes require gear.

    Thx Andy for the fa and variation info. I like that gentle OW but I'll try the bolts next time.

    Fun climb. Bolts end just below the roof. Roof looks intimidating but has great holds. When I climbed this there was a hex welded in place just above the roof as well that seemed solid.
