A classic maneuver: climb up to the roof, then traverse on holds below the roof until you have "escaped" to the right.

There are three possible starts: back in the dihedral that heads straight up to the large roof, up the little pillar just to the right of the dihedral, or up the wide crack that begins near "Tiba". The prettiest climbing and surprisingly the best protection is found on the pillar (several cracks are hidden from view).

Stop just below the top for the best anchor.

After a rain the upper part of this climb may have a film of fine dirt, because the overlook at the top is devoid of vegetation. The key holds are easily brushed clean as you go.


Left of "Tibia" and "Cul-de-sac".


Gear to 2 inches. Something wide if you choose the right-hand start.
