Doug's Roof


A bouldery start in a shallow open book... climb to the flaky roof then heel hook to pull out and follow the jugs all the way to the top..... Classic!!

The chains were installed in the early 2000's. they extend back underground around 15 feet. Still very strong. It could be time for us to think about replacing them
