Easy arete leads to a roof, then lower off. Generous rests before the roof section. Original version went left to a belay station (by Mike Stassman & Dana Drucker), Dan Haughelstine and Don Bedford added roof finish.

4 out of 5 stars Original route had different start

When we put the route up it went straight up to the roof. Somebody chopped the start and we decided to chop the finish. We came back months later and reinstalled the bolts above the roof after deciding the route was worthwhile with arete start.

4 out of 5 stars Injured and still great

Wow! Really great. More of a 5.9 with a 10.c crux. Layback to the left at the roof then get right foot up to leverage.

4 out of 5 stars Easy scrambling arete up to a fun roof.

Recording this nearly a year after, but I remember it being a nice way to end the day. Plenty of rests with the 10c being the roof section.
