Description:

From climber's left side of the Ivy Cave, look for horizontal start rail about 8' in left cave side. Pull through powerful opening moves to easier roof climbing with pockets. The psychological crux is pulling over the roof edge and up the small section above to walk off.

Descent Options:

Gotta pull the roof and commit to get to the walk off; otherwise jump onto your pads from roof lip (~15')

4 out of 5 stars Aesthetic

This climb required minimal cleaning and looks and climbs like something at Joe's Valley, not Chossville PA. A hard move or two off the start rail gains good crimps, and another sequence of deadpoints gains solid jugs out to the roof lip. Pulling the roof and gaining the ledge atop is definitely the psychological crux! Commit - the landing is good and the rock solid.
