Description:

This stellar route makes a trip to this out-of-the-way cliff worthwhile. Starting on a blunt arete, climb the arete, then transition to the face under a roof. Pull the roof with good gear, then continue to the top. No bolted anchors. 5.9+ in the Dixie Cragger's Atlas

Descent Options:

Rap from trees.

5 out of 5 stars trad lead

i finally led this tonight, its a very fun lead. i dont think the protection at the first section was very solid but the roof was protected nicely.

5 out of 5 stars very fun

this was my first roof to pull. i was very excited to complete. you dont need to do a pullup on the roof. once you get your hands on the upper lip just step to the right and continue up the face.

5 out of 5 stars Not too difficult

It's not a 9+. If you already know the route, it can be climbed in less than two minutes (I and a buddy of mine both have made it in under 90 seconds). The first time we climbed it was without shoes or chalk, so it's not too bad. It's just the intimidation factor that scares people. Lots of exposure. The roof is the only physical part-you need to be able to do a full pull-up, so you need a little upper body strength. But, it's one of the most fun, rewarding routes around.
