Description:

25 foot, nearly horizontal roof. Hard to miss. 30' of easy climbing gets you to the start of the roof. Follow the crack out; the holds get better as you go. Supposedly 5.9 until the exit, but it sure feels like ten to me. If you let go, get ready for a swing. FFA Jeff Colovis 5.11 b on lead

5 out of 5 stars .

The climb is a 5.9 not 11... I grew up here, so am use to the rock. I guess if you are a gym climber or not use to the rock type, it may feel a little more difficult. There is a perfect lock above the lip. If you nail the correct hold in the right sequence it goes easy.

4 out of 5 stars Biggest roof I've ever climbed.

Tried to on-sight it.
The roof itself is 10, pulling the lip is really hard. 11+ IMHO.

5 out of 5 stars Not too bad

real easy untill you pull the lip. thats where the crux is because there is little to pull on and no protection
