Description:

Walk left from the approach stairs until you come to a huge trash-compactor roof about 40' up. Chockstone is the thin crack to hanging dihedral on the roof's right side. The crux is the lieback to the anchors. Beware, this climb routinely spits off climbers who are very comfortable at the grade. Good thing it protects so well!

Descent Options:

Lower/rap from anchor or walk off left.

4 out of 5 stars Awesome crack

Very cool low moves into a nice hard crack climb up to the roof. Then awesome hand jams through the roof to the anchors.

4 out of 5 stars Fun climb, gotta lead it sometime

I'm unsure on the date of this one also, but it is a good climb and I need to lead it next time I'm at the bridge area.
