Description:

The obvious overhanging roof crack left of Double D. An excerpt from a recent email from Andy Redding: "The original name of that climb was "Worsman's Roof." Ed Worsman was the first to toprope the moves between the two of us. At that time, there was still the stump of a tree sticking out of the upper crack (I had cut the tree off and left the stump as a part of the climb). Eventually the stump rotted out and left that just less than perfect sized crack. I got the first free lead and actually used the stump as protection by slinging it. I doubt it would have held even a small fall! Fun times, those were." - illusiondweller

it feels like you want to first jam your left hand over the top. don't. i struggled with that for way too long. despite it's initial awkwardness, go over right hand first. push out with your right foot on the large block. slot a high left hand (fingers). get your foot on the small ledge under the roof and pull. hard. good stuff!
