Description:

IN the Camel area there is a prominent buttress of which has two prominent roofs. The start of the route ascends the slab just left of the lower roof. Climb up and right towards the lower roof. Stay left of lower roof and aim for the left facing corner that leads up to the higher roof. Climb left around the higher roof. Traverse left under the cedar. Climb up onto the ledge where the wrap station resides. This is a technical, sustained 5.7.

3 out of 5 stars Great route, tricky to protect.

Nice sustained 5.7, a couple rest spots. If you're climbing late fall early spring, watch out for the vultures! Double up on the small nuts.

Followed Skinny up this one, we didn't know which climb is was at the time, we thought it was Positron based on the description.

4 out of 5 stars very fun route

recommended, clean, was a big old vulture nest on a ledge before you start the left traverse out of the roofs, unoccupied... whew!
