Description:

Route #35 in Rick Thompson's 2001 guide, rated 5.10b/c. Starts in a right-facing dihedral with a low roof, located a few few right of Hot Beach & Tits Up. Going through the first roof is a little balancy. The second roof is slightly easier technically, but requires a committing layback. Closely bolted down low, but runout to the 9th and 10th bolts -- but on easy terrain. Popular route.

4 out of 5 stars Cold

A little more difficult when it's windy and cold. Made the already polished holds feel insecure and slick. Nice climbing though. Thought the first roof was more strenuous but the second was more difficult to figure out.

4 out of 5 stars more shelf fun

tough crowd on ratings for this one. I thought this route was a blast. a couple of different roofs, well protected through the cruxes and a stunning view to finish!
