Roofer Madness Wall is the north-facing part of the cirque that includes the east-facing Black Wall. This is trad climbing at its best - similar to the Black Wall, only bigger (800 - 900 feet high). The classic route is Roofer Madness, an 8 pitch 5.11b route that ascends an obvious buttress with a huge roof about midway up.

The best approach is to descend the Black Wall via rappel and then scramble down and east to the north-facing aprons that constitute the lower part of the wall.

Getting There 

Same driving directions as for the Black Wall. Hike to the top of the Black Wall and descend via the Black Wall rappel route.
