Description:

Guide says 5.10c/d. I gave it the "d" mostly for the uniqueness of the climb and the brassiness of moving off the stem and onto the arete. Tuck up under the roof via small pockets and a long stem, reach around right at the lip for the bolt, clip, untangle from the rope behind you now, and step out on a smear-ish foothold and reach for the holds out on the arete-splitting crack and up to the top on sharp rock.

4 out of 5 stars Really fun roof!

Three of us did this climb, and we each came up with a different method to get through the roof! Some loose rock in the middle.

4 out of 5 stars Thoughtful

Out of three of us we did 'the move' three different ways.

4 out of 5 stars i wrote the description

a most memorable climb. pockets, stems, ass-stretching, heady and a split-seamed arete.
