About halfway up Roller Skates. Photo: Mark Hudso...


Start on a hand crack just to the left of the big chimney. Continue up, stemming through the small roof feature and up the ledges,edges and cracks.


This is just uphill from Froggy Bottoms, just to the left of the big chimney.


Rack up to a #3.

Good long pitch with hand jams, stems, and face holds. From the ledge about 15 ft below the very top, you can traverse left around a corner to a tree with slings and rap rings. Best to rap down from this tree around the corner on the face to the left rather than down the Roller Skates line to avoid rope drag pulling the rope. If you TR belay off that tree, you need to extend about 15' to avoid heavy rope drag. Another option is to finish the climb up the front of the top block to another tree, which is probably 5.9 w good pro, but then you need a 70m rope to lower (I think).
