Description:

Follow the nice crack right of the CC Route to the hang, then traverse out right and surmount the large roof on the face to the right. Roof sequence is not as hard as it looks, but the lower crack is harder than it looks.

5 out of 5 stars Proud of this lead

I forgot my climbing shoes, which, turned to be a good thing. MItch made carbon fiber inserts for my shoes but they take up too much volume. So, I put the inserts into a pair of old anasazis (borrowed), wore some socks and voila a very tight fitting pair of climbing shoes. I thought about bailing right to the 5.4 exit. But, the corner/roof looked fun. So, I traversed back under the ceiling, squeezed into the semi awkward stance in the alcove. BETA WARNING: I girth hitched the chock stone, put in 2 more pieces of gear and made the traverse moves out under the roof. It took me a bit to get started, but once I moved, my climbing kicked in and it was all good. Too much rope drag on one of my ropes (poor planning on my part) so I felt like I was dragging a car up the cliff on my final moves. Woo hoo, a fun climb.

3 out of 5 stars Strenuous

The difficult sections are very short and there are good rests.
