Aaron in the crux thin hands corner - the 10 foot ...


Are you Galahad enough? Fingers to thin hands to a ten foot roof. Unmistakeable.


This is the reference climb for the wall.


1-#0.75. Two each #1 to #4 with an optional #5 to protect the last few feet past the roof. Slings before and under the roof help the rope run smoothly.

Bring a 4-foot sling for the transition, makes the rope run nice to the anchors. If you have a second clean the route (reasonable option), they will need to blast through to the first roof piece to avoid a pendulum. Or give em another #4 to hang on if needed.
