Blake pulls the roof

Description 

Climb up to a small roof, pull the roof and continue to the top while trying to avoid wandering onto Piece of Cake. This route takes pro reasonably well. As with Piece of Cake I think this route may have gotten a little harder than the original rating as the rock has migrated outward. This route was re-opened for climbing in the Fall of 2005.

  • RCM&W #41 p.165.


Location 

Between Piece of Cake and Rose Bush this route follows the arete to the right of Piece of Cake.


Protection 

Standard rack emphasis on smaller gear. Standard top rope set up with a little extra webbing for the spread out placements (I used about all 60 ft I had anyway).

Spicey lead. I only found a micro nut placement for the roof pull and then it was another 12' until one decent and one crappy nut placement.
