The roof/crux.

  • Description 

    This is the route with the small roof that makes it easy to identify. Fire and Rain also starts here but traverses hard left right away.

    Ascend featured terrain past a loose downward pointing tooth (beware) past 5 bolts straight up to the small roof. Note, there is another stray bolt going right below the roof that may be used to connect with Crack Where the Sun Don't Shine (retrobolted as Stroke of Luck) or Rain Check. Lieback or jam (painful) with your right hand and get up to a fingerlock / hole and get your feet up. Continue up on easier terrain to a 2 bolt anchor with Mussy hooks.

    Some might argue that this is 10a. It may warrant a 9+/10-, but that isn't an option.


    This is the bolted route straight up from the tree near the middle of the wall - just left of Crack Where The Sun Don't Shine that goes over a small roof.


    9 bolts.

    The roof felt 10a but may be harder for short folks.

    Visited the crag for the first time today with the family. Easy approach, cool temperatures, and very amply bolted routes. Yee ha, lots 0' fun. This route definitely climbed in the easy 10 range and pulling the roof was a blast. Oh yeah, the wood rat shit made the roof moves more fun, too!!!

    I thought this was the line called Spooked? When I climbed it, I was wondering if the poop had something to do with the name. Could the route currently labeled as Spooked be wrong? Or am I wrong?

    According to Bob D'Antonio's 2nd ed guidebook, this route is "Spooked" (5.10). I'm throwing up a beta photo that shows the full route.

    Reachy roof, but trust it, the holds are good!

    Agreed with the previous comments here. Pretty good romp up to the roof. Find some good holds and high feet, and pulling over the roof is no big deal even for a short guy (5'6). Very fun climb worth doing if in the area.

    Felt about the same difficulty as Quicksilver and Erika to me. 5.10- sounds about right. Lots of bat poop below the roof, watch the feet.
