Into the crux sequence


Start on the block below the roof and climb out the left side on cool holds. There is a definitive thrutchy crux getting to the lip. Could be easier for the taller.


Walk up the CCC trail and once you reach the first cliff band head left into the talus about 100yards and look for the roofy boulder. The roof faces west.


A few pads. Falls of the last move were violent for me and the landing is not perfect.

Pretty fun little problem. New beta definitely made this easier than V7. Used a left foot cam low to reach good hold statically on the lip. Easier and much less committing than Ian's original beta.
