4 out of 5 stars Again...

another decent route that is as good if not better than Johnny Vegas on the lower slab, but gets climbed about 1/100th of the time which is fine by me. With Pat B.

5 out of 5 stars free!

well, i don't know if this is the first asccent because i have heard through the grape vine jerry handren might have done it like a week before me. but the route is really cool. very thin, but not as thin as you think. you need like three metolius #1's and one metolus 0 size cams for the roof. it's not too bad, some easier lay-back/ stemming moves, then a bigger move with no feet to a large bucket in the crack. go give it a go, i think it goes around 5.12-

This route will go free in the future.

I'm guessing around 5.12+ to 5.13-. Someone with very thin fingers will have a huge advantage. But it would be doable by a very strong climber with fatter fingers.

All you need to protect the roof is 3 Blue Aliens(purple TCU's).
It's a cool roof!!
