Description 

Just right of the main White Cliff slab area are two routes that pass through a large, low roof. Funky follows the right set of bolts. The climb begins left of the large arete with slabby/bulge start with the first bolt at the lip of the roof. Carefully clip the first bolt, crank the roof (cruxy) and follow the line up to the airy second and final roof. Pull this and sit back on the top anchor chains. Be careful of loose rock on the final roof. It has a great start and like a good beer...a great finish, Super "Gunky".


Location 

Begin 30' left of huge, overhanging, left-facing corner/arete (The Exfoliator).


Protection 

6 bolts.

My favorite route of the day.

Easier than it looks, though be careful clipping the first bolt.
One can also jog left after the 2nd bolt to hit the upper section of Czech Cashing, thereby avoiding the 11d roof.

This may be more challenging for short climbers, since the jugs are hard to see above the 1st roof.

Likely the best route on White Cliff. Two fun roof moves separated by easy face climbing. Enjoy.

Anyone done this climb with a 60m rope?
