Description:

Starts about 20 feet left of Airborne and 20 feet right of House of the Rising Sun in a right facing corner crack. Climb the corner crack with a crux at the top where it thins. Now take a breather and get ready to run through the roofs to a rest ledge. Follow the easy right facing corner to a roof and trend right to the Airborne anchors being careful not to pull on the "X" blocks.

Descent Options:

Bolted anchors

4 out of 5 stars Do it

From the ground the roof looks unprotectable which couldn't be further from the truth. If anything there is too much pro that will distract you from hurrying up and out. The roof exposure really makes the route worth doing. The Dixie guide rates this as 11a/b but in reality it is probably only 10c or d.
