Description:

An awesome route for its grade. About 100 feet right of Roseland is a boulder pile. Scramble up this and climb a crack to some roofs, then head left to a ledge. Angle left up the face to a huge belay ledge below a huge corner. Climb this awesome exposed and overhanging corner to the top.

5 out of 5 stars Need to try the variation for P2

Would like to try going up and over rather than traversing. Gear looks thin and the climbing looks slabby.

Mitch lead the money pitch.

4 out of 5 stars Such a great climb

I have never run P1/P2 together. Next time I will. P3 is the best.

5 out of 5 stars A nice warm up on a 47 degree morning

We wanted to check the temp of the rock before we climbed. So, we warmed up on Gelsa. Always fun pulling jugs. Traverse is ho hum.
