This description is for the presently unclimbed roofs in the middle of the south buttress of the Mezzanines. They are located above the first landing of "Avoiding the Issue" ( ). The lines will likely be in the 5.11 to 5.12 range.

This description can be amended or deleted once the roof is sent.


Above the first landing of "Avoiding the Issue." Two or three independent lines are likely possible. A few bolts may be needed, but protection looks generally adequate. Some loose rock is present, but could be easily cleaned by climbing "Nickel and Dimed" or "Bloody Show" and rappelling in.

See photo:


Protection looks ample, though a bolt or two may be necessary.
