  • Description 

    Samsara Roof is the classic Old Castle roof crack test piece.
    Boulder problem off of central ledge gets you into this stellar overhanging finger crack. The crux is definitely pulling the lip of roof but another ankle busting crux occurs after roof, pulling into Conception.

    Location 

    Obvious splitter roof crack starting off middle left of Central Ledge.

    Protection 

    Gear to 2", double finger sized pieces. Conception Anchor.
