Description 

Climb up into the pod and place a piece of gear deep inside with a sling to protect the moves pulling the roof. Reverse out of the pod (Thus the route name). Get ready for a crack that goes from #2 C4 to #5 or 6 C4. Beware loose rock near the top, and bring some gear smaller than a #2 to protect the roof at the top. Enjoy! It's as good as it looks!


Location 

Far south end of the parking lot for the El Malpais lookout, head south and look down over the cliff.


Protection 

Doubles to #3 C4, single #4 C4, two #5 C4s, and either a #5 or #6 C4. Gear anchor at top.
