Description:

Two pitches of forgettable easier climbing reaches the huge ledge at the base of the infamous roof. Climb easily to the base of the roof(don't place until just below it to avoid rope drag, and then get 1 or 2 pieces in), pull it, and climb the steep face above.

5 out of 5 stars Do I always do this climb in the rain?

WE did this today, so much fun. As soon as we got to the ground, the skies opened up and we were hit with a deluge. Thunder, Lightning almost concurrent. Crazy times under the overhang waiting for things to settle down.

5 out of 5 stars In the rain

It was pouring rain. DON"T LEAVE YOUR PACK ON THE TOP OF THE STARTING BLOCK WHEN IT'S RAINING...A RIVER WILL RUN THROUGH IT! Very carefully picked my way up. Pouring, soaking rain.

5 out of 5 stars Wow. A Gem.

Very impressive, committing and continually gracious in the hold arena. NateDogg led 1st pitch and he graciously gave me the 2nd pitch as darkness neared.
