Rock (Toprope)
This route probably best left top-roped. Very little protection past the half-way point on this route but great anchors at the top. Decent trees and a horizontal crack in the ledge at the top of the face protect the climb.

This climb starts about 10 feet to the right of a large left-facing corner, directly between the routes Mossad and Star of David. It begins with two small roofs (thus the name) with tiny handholds. It then ascends directly up the face / slab above on very small holds. Though the hand holds are miniscule, the slab is not quite vertical and the rock is slightly abrasive which affords great friction. Avoid the small right facing crack to your left near the top of the climb. Local guides call the route 5.11-. In my opinion, its a hard 5.10.

No problem today. Yellow-point. Would make for a fun lead. Maybe the bolt can be repaired.

Linked everything up, but could not "yellow-point". The overhangs are really fun to pull.

Varied climb...starts with overhangs and ends with a great slab climb to the anchors. Probably gets little action, but I reccommend it.
