Done properly this climb is 12a – This route starts 10 metres to the left of “Into Space/Fallen Tree” and climbs through two roofs. To keep to the 12a grade the second roof must be climbed straight on (not climbed around on the right – which many people do, which then drops the grade to 11a). The first smaller "roof" can be climbed on the left or the right - the left is harder, but a more aesthetic line. This climb ends mid cliff with a set of anchor chains.

Descent Options:

lower or rap from chains.

4 out of 5 stars Good, but rarely climbed.

Going straight over the second roof is actually pretty fun. A couple of dynamic moves required. I always climb this run this way and then combine it with the pitch above (called "Butt Cheese). I've never seen anyone but me climb this route.
