TM Overhang is located on the face just to the west of Red Slab (#73). Climb the crack below the roof by either jamming or using a layback. Once to the roof reach high for holds to get over the crux. Climb easier rock to the top.

On lead a #3 Camalot with a long draw can be placed above the roof to give great protection for pulling through those moves.

Good route, a little on the short side, and much easier than other 10's at the lake.

This was one of my first leads at the Lake some 30+ years ago. Wasn't this rated F8 in the old guidebook? I came off reaching for the jug pocket over lip. Kind of a long reach. I remember watching my #7 Chouinard stopper rip out of the lower crack as I flew past. Ended up cratering onto the base slab on my hands and knees. Didn't get hurt and went back up and cruised it on post-crater adrenaline. If I'd have known it was more like 10a, probably never would have tried it. #DLFA

This is a great lead! Great gear and fun movement. A bit on the short side, but worth doing if you in the area.
