Low angle face typical of this section of stone leads to puzzling and hard moves up to the roof and a bolt I found hard to clip. The move past the roof is hard to figure out as there isn't a way to see over it. Tough onsight.


To the right of Head Cleaner and turns the roof where a short little arete leads up to it.

I believe this route is called Achy Brachiator. The roof is definitely hard to read on a first go but feels fairly casual on the redpoint.

The route is definitely called 'Achy Brachiator' and was established by Scott Ayers. I personally found it to be quite an enjoyable line. Beautiful orange rock leads to tricky, slopy climbing. The final roof sequence is brutally awesome.
