"Direct Left", most easily accessed from Grunt'N'D...
Climbing restricted due to tourist safety MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Great route. Easier than it looks!


Location 

Obvious overhanging corner left of the Trinity cracks. Start on Grunt'N'Dangle; climb to roof. Pull roof into corner and follow to top.


Protection 

Single rack. Large cams (or similar) are useful for the bottom off-width corner (Grunt'N'Dangle). Typical trad anchors for the Overlook.

Also see Trinity Roofs. This was simply referred to as Direct Exit in Toula's A Cheap Way To Fly. Either way, some of the better climbing at the Overlook.

Did all the trinity cracks today and this was my favorite route of them all. Super fun roof moves with wild stemming! Awesome jugs once you pull the roof. No need for big gear in the off width, bring small gear (finger tips for me) for the tiny crack on the right face. Also don't place anything deep under the roof like I did, lots of rope drag potential, duh. Plenty of good pro towards the outside, a couple .75s, 2s and 3s each to sew it up. A must do!
