Jon Garlough gets ready to fire the roof on Coyote...
Takes a surprisingly easy line directly through the center of the large roof feature on the far right of the cliff. Should become a popular beginner route as it is now thoroughly cleaned, has great protection, and exciting moves on big holds.
P1: From the beech tree at the start of Rona's Roof, face climb straight up (fixed pin on left) then passing climbers right of a small tree, then directly up to a stance under the large roof. Place pro and fire over the roof on huge holds to an easy, broken slab. Pine tree belay with fixed rap station. 70', 5.6
P2: Continue straight up the broken slab to a shared pine tree anchor atop Trifecta. 50', 5.5
Starts as for Rona's Roof, on a sloping ledge behind a beech tree. Rap the route in two raps from large trees equipped with cord and quick links.
Trad rack to 2 1/2" cams; one fixed pin to protect the start. Fixed tree anchors on both pitches. Great gear all the way.

Named for the howling of coyotes and the brief storm prior to the first ascent. The rap off was done in a steady rain.

Although listed as two pitches, this climbs best as one pitch, extending slings as needed. A 70M rope, thrown directly over the route, will just get you to the ground. Alternatively, the listed first pitch belay tree is fully equipped with a quadrupled runner and quick links.

This is an awesome route and great for those new to leading. The views are unreal!

This is a must do at this cliff. Absolutely fantastic for the grade.

We climbed this again the other night by headlamp under the crescent moon and full compliment of stars, and this thought came up in conversation: Is this the best single pitch of 5.6 in NH?

I think so I have done a lot of 5.6 pitches and I can't think of a better one.
