Above the roof.
Located in a National Forest Fee Area MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Start from the ledge directly below the route and balance your way through blue and tan mineral deposits past three bolts.

Figure out how to get established on and then past the enjoyable, juggy-but-balancy roof. Eyeball the crux, commit, and get past it with a powerful, reachy move.

Cruise to the chains with just a bit of apprehension when jugs turn to slopers near the top.


Location 

On the west-facing wall. After rounding the point and passing Long Shadows you pass a couple of mossy, lower-angled black walls.

After the black walls is a lighter-colored wall with a midpoint roof that descends from upper left down to lower right.

Credibility Check is the right-most route on this wall and turns the roof at the point where it changes from angled to horizontal.


Protection 

8 bolts, chain anchors.

Despite being a glued-together pile of choss this route is a lot of fun.

In A Climber's Guide to Select Walls in American Fork Canyon this is rated .11d/12a. Since MountainProject doesn't have .11d/.12a, I'll put it in as .12a to make me feel more accomplished...

Anyway, if you're shorter, the crux will almost certainly feel .12a.

All of it is very fun. Find a no hands rest just before the crux. Give those abs a workout and enjoy.
