3 out of 5 stars Head over Heals

Two different guidebooks show two different methods of climbing this classic roof problem from their topo photos. I followed the easy seam up to the right side of the roof. There is a bolt on the right side. I clipped that and used footwork to traverse left over the arete into the crack. The right upper variation is by far the straighter path directly to the rap. Suppose a heel hook would be another option for pulling the roof. With Alfred from CA.

3 out of 5 stars bandycoot weekend

Seconded on bandycoot weekend 2/17/2007: Really fun climbing. Kind of a one move wonder though.

Led this yo-yo style with albert. Got it clean from the ground but there was a piece pre-clipped. Maybe I will do it again.
