Let's Get Horizontal
|555 page views|
Just left of Super Roof (5.9) is this atypical route which climbs steep and positive holds out the roof and up the face above.
Scramble/climb up to a small ledge where the actual climbing begins, and then climb up the vertical face (optional pro below the roof) and out the roof on positive holds to enjoyable climbing above, passing a horizontal crack (gear to 2.5") and up to the top. Descend as per Super Roof. Two stars out of five.
A unique route for the area in that it features steep, well-protected moves on mostly large, incut features. Sadly, a bolt below the roof and the two bolt anchor that used to be in place were chopped by an unknown, anonymous coward.
2 bolts (3/8"), gear to 3"

A good route! the moves out of the overhang are powerful and gymnastic! Also the crux after the second bolt is way hard for people under like 5.10

I was on this a few weeks back and there are only two bolts on the lower half. Gear went well at camalot c4 0.4" and 2"
