Reaching wide to get established on the roof crack...

Description 

This short route starts on a dirty ledge and follows a podded seam for 15-20ft, with a dirty, lichen covered face for the first 10 or so feet. This crack/seem leads to a small roof with a #4-#5 C4 sized crack. The roof is a little bit bouldery and sequential, but making sure your gear is set well makes for a fun climb.

Location 

This is found on the other side of the canyon from Echoes of the fall; along the same trail that goes to the cave. The wall can be seen through the trees when looking across the bridge and upcanyon. There is no great way to get to this route. I found the best way was to not take the first trail that cut right, but instead, go till there is a fence at the corner of the third or so switch back. Cross this fence and walk across a rock slide and then follow the wall till you find a lichen covered face. If anyone finds a better way to get here or a better way to describe it, feel free to help out.

Protection 

Gear to chain anchors. Singles of #3-#5 C4's and possibly some stoppers or micro cams for the top out. The crack surface can make some cam placements not the best, but good placements are there, just make sure they are solid before you come off while trying to pull the roof.
