Sometimes listed as "The Root of Inequity". Not sure which one's correct, but I prefer Roof. The main point of this route is the roof pull, and it's over pretty quickly.

A bouldery start (stick-click advised) past the first two bolts gains a big ledge and full rest. Climb steadily (high 5.10, maybe) on big holds past 2 more bolts and a piton to gain the undercut on the roof. Clip the bolt on the lip then make a few big moves on surprisingly good pocket holds and rock up onto the slab above. A few more easy moves remain to clip the chains.


Near the right-hand end of the crag. Start below the roof with the obvious chalked-up undercling.


6 bolts, 1 piton, 2-bolt anchor.

Did this a few years ago - awesome movement through the roof, height dependent feels 7b/.12b if you're a shorty like me.
