Description:

On Great Head Left side. On the left-most roof, take the break through the left side of the roof. Climb up and then hand traverse left under the next roof. Be careful to set gear to keep your rope out of the crack - it'll eat it if given a chance - this has caused more an epic or two. Then technical climbing past the bolt, and up and left following the flakes and cracks to the top.

Descent Options:

Walk, rap, or lower.

4 out of 5 stars The crux is a thinker.

I thought I had my gear set to avoid the crack but not quite. Luckily the rope was still moving through it so I kept going.

3 out of 5 stars Very tricky!

Found it very difficult for the grade (9- in the book). The move past the bolt is really tough!
