One roof down, two to go ... Triple Treat (5.10a),...

Writing in chalk MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Three mini-roofs make this climb an ultra classic.

Tape-up and start this climb off on a low roof, and continue up to two more!

Really a classic, super-pumpy to place pro. A broken hold in 2014 may or may not have made this line a touch more difficult.

Location 

Middle route of Orchard Wall. Under triple roofs.

Protection 

Up to #4 Camalot. Bolted anchor.

Not any more difficult than 20 years ago. Still a burly move past the first roof. A #1bd works perfect for protecting the crux move. Watch rope drag on this one. Long slings are useful. Anchors just after the last roof up and to the left.

Be very careful with the rope. It's easy for it to get sucked into the crack in the first roof, burying your cams and causing the rope to get stuck, when you lower off the anchors.

This is one of those excellent climbs where the on-sight is likely going to be WAY harder for most folks than the redpoint due to the trickery required at the low crux. It ain't obvious, but its great fun!
