Description 

The incredible tiered roof below Early Retirement, two lines downhill from Rock Your World, just right of the old location of Two Bolts to Nowhere. Bolted and worked by Michael Fisher and Mike Gray, finally fell to a prolonged siege by Fisher, Clarke, and Ryan Eubank. Dynamic, sustained, and still a bit crumbly in a few spots, sure to please fans odf the STEEEEEEP!


Location 

Just uphill from Jump Start, under the obvious gigantic roof. Lower from anchors and have someone TR this to clean... trollying in is a b*tch-kitty.


Protection 

Draws and rap anchors... and a healthy pair of huevos doesn't hurt, either...

Easily identified by the long chain hanging from the 6th(?) bolt. The first 20 feet could use a good sweeping, but in all, this is an excellent, excellent climb.
