Description:

Pitch 1: Work your way up the left-facing corner under the roof, finding placements in the crack. Reach a sizable ledge under the Tango Roof, then traverse left ~10', clipping 2 fixed pins. Watch out for a pendulum fall. Come up around the roof on the left, reaching a bolted belay stance on a good ledge. Pitch 2: Very short pitch(~20' total). Leave belay ledge and move up and slightly left to the bolt. Move left and grovel & grunt through a tight slot in the overhang, jamming fists. Bolted anchor is just above the overhang.

4 out of 5 stars nice long route

Climbing around the roof was the crux and required some grunting through some pumpy moves. Nice view once you get higher than the tree tops.

4 out of 5 stars A bleader

Make sure you clip a draw in the first bolt or you will hate life when you fall. I climbed above my draw and a huge mistake. Unclip before you continue. Grunt you way through some sketchy spots but once at top a nice rewarding ledge.

3 out of 5 stars Tango

Have to watch out for pendulum swing if you fall while under the overhang. Height helps. *1
