A spectacular overhanging lieback. start by scrambling up to a ledge about 15 ft up. gather your thoughts and follow the lieback finger crack as it gradually becomes overhung until reaching the top. a challenging variation continues right once reaching the top, and requires a pro placement just before sending the small roof (5.10b)

3 out of 5 stars Fun when dry

One of the best routes at Rim Rock. Recommend using cams or tricams to lead. The optional traverse has a fun and exposed 5.10b move. Might be possible to set a TR over the roof if you use a cam as a directional in the overhanging crack.
