The face just right of Period Piece climbs up to pleasureable roof moves on big holds. This is surprisingly solid and has a nice position.


7 bolts to chains.

I tried to glue some of the holds using liquid nails stone and block adhesive. I don't know how successful this was so I would recommend that the belayer stand under the roof to avoid rockfall danger. I am also ammenable to upgrading the route to 11b if anyone can confirm. %:_)

I would say two 11b cruxes (by the second bolt and at the big roof.)

I think it was 11a. It's not that hard over the roof once you find the holds.

Really nice route with enjoyable moves. There is a chunk of rock that will likely come off in the not too distant future that people may want to be aware of.

It's the block of stone that was, IMO, the most obvious left hand for the start and, based on rubber smear, is used a lot as a foot hold in the moves past the first bolt.

It's too low to be a danger for the belayer but, if it came off as someone was pulling onto the route it could lead to a surprising deck fall that would be short but could still do some damage.

Nice movement, good line.
