Jay Brown cruxing trying to get gear in!


Head up easy hands in a corner to a roof (stem). Best to backclean or run out the hands stretch to avoid rope drag. Pull around the corner into fingers leading to a strenuous stance beneath the 2nd roof. Pull this roof to another strenuous stance beneath the 3rd roof. Above this roof sequential jamming leads to the chains but there are no stances so you'll either need burl to place gear or balls to punch it for a short ways.


A couple of 2-3" pieces, many fingers sized pieces.

It's to the right of Scarface, about a hundred yards. There are two roof cracks, one Comic Relief, the other Not That Funny. Both are to the left of the mega-classic Desert Vaurnet.

one of scarface' finest routes! goes from hands directly to fingers and pulls 3 little roofs. crux is actually after it gets vertical again towards the top since your feet are quite slippery and insecure. "just lay back, dude"
