A bouldery start leads to a good rest ledge and an opportunity to place pro in the crack (it's nice insurance if you were to blow the second clip). Once you start pulling the roof, steep, fun, and exciting moves take you all the way to the top. Don't delay; keep pulling for the anchors.

Be aware: The spiky boulders at the base are not an enticing landing zone and the bouldery start is worth paying attention to. Stick clip recommended.


Roofus is the first route you come to when you arrive at the main wall of the Humane Society. Look for the roof.


3 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor with chains. Stick clip recommended.

A blue or purple metolius TCU fits nicely in the crack. Need is debatable.

A stick clip for the first bolt can be nice. A few thin moves over uneven blocky ground start things out.
