Description:

start at the right end of the mantles block. pull the first roof at the right end at some good horizontals. the original route apparently moves further right for the second roof. the second roof can also be climbed at the middle with a balancy high-step at 5.8.

3 out of 5 stars Rainy day fun

Raining today. Had to make due. Set up a TR and climbed this after the rain stopped. Traverse up under the second roof was wet (hands and feet), making the delicate moves across and up a little difficult. Finish was very interesting and seemingly gearless.

3 out of 5 stars gear is thin

you can finish on dis-mantle as noted elsewhere here. the traverse is fun and probably easier and/or less strenuous, but the gear is low and tricky.

2 out of 5 stars Not worth it

A bit contrived and the protetction was less than ideal.
