Pulling the first roof.


A stout lesson on climbing quick on smaller holds. WWW ascends a first small roof on descent holds which peter out, leaving one choice: crank on the crimp at the lip and keep on cruising. The middle face climbs smoothly up the the final roof, a bit pumpy, but generally big pockets and gymnastic roof climbing. A fun line.


Located on the left side of the Hardware wall before the Fallen Idol pillar. Locate the lower small roof at the 2nd clip and the bigger bulging roof higher on the route.


7 bolts to anchor.

This route has been misnamed. Actual intended name was "Whipperly Whopperly Walk"....after a line of dialogue uttered by the peeping Tom character in the movie "Hardware"

Great route, getting over the first roof felt like the crux but the second roof is pretty tough too!

So after the fire the whole wall around WWW seems more brittle and prone to breaking. For example, the crimp rail that is above the first bulge has broken off, now making the lower crux much sharper, smaller, and just a bit harder. I climbed it yesterday and bouldered through it, but I dunno if it could be much harder than 11c. Anyone who has climbed it after the rail broke care to put in his or her 2 cents?

This route could definitely use some cleaning...
It looks like there is a missing hold pulling through the first bulge.
While moving through the moves I pulled off a 10-11" plate. Fortunately I held onto it. There are some very suspect/ flexing looking flakes on the base of this route.
Be careful and bring a helment for your belayer just in case.
Felt harder than 11B to me.
