Attacking the roof.


An ever-steepening romp up the alabaster choss-fest to the left of The Jobsite overhang.

Start by cruising on huge holds up near-vertical rock through four bolts. Continue up (trending left a bit) through steeper and steeper terrain past sharp rock with disconcertingly knife-like, vertical edges. Arrive at a much blanker section below the roof and figure out the next couple of moves while fighting the pump.

A wonderful, juggy roof problem awaits, with a last trick or two above the roof before the chains.


The 2nd line of bolts from the right of the lines grouped to the left of the enormous, overhanging roof of Jobsite

The line starts above a steep, short gully, just before you climb up onto the outcropping from which Honey Dipper and Roofer start.


10 bolts, chain anchors.
