BETA PHOTO: Standing-On-Rock, P2


P1. Climb the dirty, loose, but fairly well protected approach pitch to gain the right-hand side of a comfortable ledge just below the roof. 5.7 60'

P2. Start left along the roof crack, but at the first opportunity, pull over the roof. Continue up on fun, blocky climbing. Watch out for the wobbly refrigerator block that would certainly annihilate your belayer if pulled off! 5.9 90'

For a top anchor, we slung a large, not in-situ boulder on top of the buttress. It would take a lot of effort to dislodge this boulder but we backed it up with a #4 in a crack just up the hill to make our mothers proud.


.3-2 with an optional #4 for the anchor.

A slung PBR chock could also take the place of the #4.
