Description:

Climb up an easy dihedral about 15 feet left of the lowpoint of the Dome. Pull over a bulge and head left along the ramp to a belay.

Pitch 2 has two options. You can traverse left two crack system into an easy escape, and this lower the grade to 5.5 The standard finish climbs the overhanging handcrack in a dihedral, which feels much harder than 5.7 for 10 feet until the angle lessens.

Decent climb, but a lot of wandering for a few tricky moves.

4 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

One of my first trad roofs. Had to do the famous chin hold followed by the famous cheek/face hold, but made it to the top. Weather was crappy all morning until I got to the roof. The sun came out in a blaze of glory giving me that little extra umphhh.
