Route Peyton and I climbed.

Description 

Faint crack system on the face right of pigeon roof. The climb is hard off of the ledge, and the crux involves some tricky movement through the overhang, finishing on the face to the right of the arete next pigeon roof.

Protection 

Sparse in the beginning but good once you get to it.

Anyone know the name of the route that goes immediately to the right of this climb? I believe we were climbing to the left of Lady fingers. The climb was hard off of the ledge, and you didn't get pro till hitting a nice horizontal crack. Afterwards the crux involved some tricky movement with side-pulls and an under-cling, finishing on the face to the right of the arete next pigeon roof.

Isaac? How hard was it? No mention in any guide of this route that I know of? Did you lead "Ladyfingers" too. That's a sketchy kinda lead too.

I believe it's fair to highlight the fact that I had never been to the major/minor mass before and was adamant to my climbing partner that pigeon roof was hammer crack. We didn't get on ladyfingers I believe as I didn't know where we were climbing till after we had returned to the car and the guidebook. These moments of idiocy did not faze me as I've often experienced them in my climbing career. Since we didn't know the area we figured the route we did was something. It felt 5.10a/b R to the both of us. I'll highlight in one of the pictures posted where we climbed for clarification.

Isaac just give it a name. You posted about this long enough ago that folks who had climbed it could have already chimed in. And still could. Shoot me an email when you're coming back to the lake.

Named in honor of Peytons ability to summon the rain whenever he is on lead.

Also a great climb along with Ladyfingers. Hardest move right off the deck with a directional at your feet. Some good stuff in the middle, a red C3 was key. A micro cam in a flaring pod is the only thing that protects the top but the climbing eases off.

I can't believe Sven missed this one!

Wow! Pulling through that roof it was not at all obvious where to go. A sequence of small crimps hidden in plain view, classic Lake!
