Buddy about to tackle the roof on Root Down.

Located in a National Forest Fee Area MORE INFO >>>


1. Climb up a small crack.
2. Pull roof.
3. Rinse and Repeat.

Thats all it takes to climb Root Down. Some crux-ish climbing follows a small to medium crack through a series of two roof systems.
Finish at a two bolt anchor.

Short-lived, this is a worthty crack and a real fun line.
Good gear, good moves, good for you!


Obvious roof route on the right side of the Lower Moore Wall. Visible chain anchor.


A light single rack or cams and some stoppers.

Fun thuggy moves through intimidating roofs that turn out to be littered with jugs. Too bad it isn't longer but still a great warm-up for the area if you're dragging a rack up there.
Gear up to a #2.

Very fun route with jugs everywhere. The gear is straightforward, and the grade seems more like 5.8 to me.

Pretty fun and obvious to TR the arete. Nice to squeeze out some more mileage on this wall
