  • Description 

    This climb starts near the far left side of the rock (about 10 feet left of What If You're Not?). Climb up the face to a small roof. Crank the roof with good holds and finish up to the top.


    Bring a couple of stoppers (or better yet, cams) and about 10 feet worth of slings.

    This route takes little gear and does have some poor rock. I placed a few small tricams and one stopper about 1/2 way up (just before the crux) and then ran it out for the top. The crux felt slightly more awkward than the other 5.8's here, but not much harder.

    I tried following the (incipient) crack from the ground, but this is probably 5.9 X. The easiest start (also shown in Rossiter's topo) is shared with "Bar None", you can now clip the first bolt on that route and then head up and right.

    The crux roof is exciting but not too bad, if you do it the easiest way (and nothing breaks off).
