Left of Roof -- Three Variations
|652 page views|
Several very good boulder problems lie immediately left of the obvious roof described as an unnamed Gill problem in this guide. They all start on the north side of the roof. I'll describe them left to right.
1) V0- Left side of roof, left of the two trees, and about 10 feet right of the obvious downclimb. Long reach or dyno to the big jugs. Edge on good holds to the top.
2) V0 -- About 6 feet right of #1, and near the leftmost of the two trees. Up the center of the roof, then move left to positive crimps and up the easy face.
3) V0+ -- A few feet farther right, between the two trees. Reach for the big crack. Crank your feet onto the sloping lip.
4) V? -- Harder variations abound on the right.
Torture Chamber, about 25 yards east of the Torture Chamber Traverse and immediately opposite the giant roof.
