Description:

As you walk down the stone steps coming from the parking lot, the Warm Up boulders and Bizzaro on your right, there's an inconspicuous roof near ground level along a short vertical face to your left. Crawl under this roof, the problem sit starts deep in the cave on the obvious chalky horizontal shelf. Follow the flake on the roof out toward the trail. At the lip of the roof, make a long move to the horizontal crack on the face, then pull out from under the roof and top out.

4 out of 5 stars ascent note

Burley. Fun footwork to keep from cutting and therefore dabbing.

Fun juggy roof. No pads will keep you from dabbing.

5 out of 5 stars awsome gravity

this problem gets passed up at coppers but is one that i would have to do anytime i go there. cool cave with awesome tension and foot work a toe lock between a crimp and crack mid way through the sequence. once locked in the route becomes very pumpy but has great hand holds
