Description 

The defining moment of this climb is pulling the tricky, bouldery roof that you'll encounter halfway up. The protection is good for the crux, but the 15 feet of slab afterwards might have you feeling a little nervous. Starting at a head high block at the base of the crag, mantle up then follow a thin crack and face holds up to a ledge. Traverse left for 15 feet beneath the roof until you can get into the handcrack with a small tree above. Use whatever trickery you can to get over the roof and onto the face and low angle slab above. Follow the slab up to another ledge beneath the 2nd roof, then climb the crack and flakes to the top.

Location 

Left of the center of the crag, a tree and a boulder obstruct the trail just left of a protruding block. This climb starts on the right side of the block beneath a very thin crack.

Protection 

Standard rack
