Pulling the roof on Strange Fruit, Jamestown, AL.


Climb the slab past a bolt to a big ledge. Locate the small left facing corner with a wide crack....load that bad boy up. Climb up the corner just a touch until you can swing around to the right via horizontal cracks and holds...don't forget the gear or you will probably break both ankles when/if you fall on the slab below. Placing gear from a tenuous stance near here is probably the crux. Tip toe up and right to a ledge below a crack that leads to a mini-roof with another crack and a tree directly above. Enjoy!


Just before the big water seep...near Pickin' & Grinnin'. Look for the bolt on a slab.


1 bolt, small - medium cams, nuts, slings, tree with slings.

I used a number 4 camalot below the roof...probably optional since there is also a bomber nut placement there as well.
