Hayden at the crux roof on the FA


Alternate finish to Itchy Scratchy or a great additional pitch to lead or TR. Good gear in cracks protects a variety of climbing to the roof which is the crux. Finish on bolt protected face climbing on good edges.


Can be climbed as one pitch from top of the 3rd or by building a gear anchor in crack slightly above and right of bolted 4th pitch anchor.
Pitch climbs right facing corner to roof. Pass roof on the left to bolted face climbing and same anchor as Itchy Scratchy.


Gear and then 2 bolts. Same rack a Itchy Scratchy

Great pitch. I'm surprised few have done this; might as well while you're up there. It's quite entertaining and almost seems 5.10 until you latch a HUGE jug on the roof. Eats plenty of gear. Only saw 2 bolts but I can be quite myopic.
