BETA PHOTO: Taking a look at the crux roof move


Lightning Bolt is located on the right side of 90' foot wall about 20 feet left of the big cedar tree. It begins in a dihedral beneath an obvious roof and continues straight up and over the roof. The move from dihedral to roof-pulling is extremely odd and quite fun.Once above the roof, 5.8 face takes you up and a little right to the anchors.


Bolts up top, bring a long sling and some gear to back it up.

a fun variation is to climb up the crack to the left of the dihedral
