An improbable roof leads to a short section of incredibly beautiful face climbing. Start on the right side of the Upper Crag. Climb the face/arete to a shelf. Move right, through the giant roof to the arete. (Description taken from The High Country Cragger - Mike Grimm 2010)

Descent Options:

Rappel from anchors or press out the mantle and walk off.

5 out of 5 stars Awesome, fun, scary route.

Did this on TR. 2 crux's. 1st is right above the bolt - double crimp to a jug that starts the shelf. Great rest on the shelf - you could lay down and take a nap. 2nd crux is the roof. Not that hard but really exposed and heady. It wold be big swing to fall from there. Great, great route.
