Description 

This line is actually a lot more fun than it looks and not nearly as contrived as it may appear. This is the roof above geronimo on the far east end of the upper s-turns area. From the anchors atop geronimo one will see the obvious line of bolts that diaganol climbers left up and over the roof. Steep but juggy climbing prevails with a fun leftward traverse clipping three bolts. The crux is between the last and second to last bolt at the uppermost lip of the roof and is stout. From below, the holds around the lip look much better than they actually are.


Location 

Climb Geronimo and from the anchors you will see the obvious line of bolts that climb lefward and over the roof. Anchors at the top, rap down to geronimo, one more rap to the ground.


Protection 

All bolts. Rap Anchors at the top of the route.

A fun extension to Geronimo. If you take care to alleviate rope drag, it is easily led in one pitch from the ground. You can rap all the way to the ground from the top of High Dive with a single 60m.

This route is very fun if you link it right after geronimo. Make sure to bring at least 2 or 3 longer slings: one for the chains on geronimo, and 2 for the next 2 bolts after the chains. The climb is not as hard as it seams! You're pulling the largest jugs I have ever seen. It's feels like a 5.10b to a short V1 crux. The crux is right after the last bolt to the chains. Overall it's a pretty fun route.
