Situated above Rubber Lover, the crux is encountered at the roof. Arguably, the finest climb of the grade at the Lake. Look for the knee-bar rest at the 2/3 mark to take the sting out of this ones tail.

5 out of 5 stars THE 12a to do at the Lake.

An absolutely fantastic route with great moves. The best 12a at the Lake.

Oh baby! This is the 12a to do. Pumpy, but with lots of rests on the way up. The roof crux is a bitch, but remember to face right when pulling over and you should be okay.
