Description 

Climb the handcrack on the left side of the bowl 30 feet to the roof crack. Turn the roof via the crack on the left side. You can belay above, but it's better to place long slings and continue to the top. Continue following the crack system above over a few bulges and to the top of the cliff. Good rock for the first 30 feet, great rock after.


Location 

Near the right end of the Dark Side Wall, this is the 8 foot triangular roof about 30 feet off the ground. Start in the crack below it.


Protection 

Gear to 3.5". Many slings to help rope drag. Rap off trees or hike over to Diet Pepsi and rap off bolts.

Just did this beautiful climb this weekend. It has what appear to be brand new anchors at the top. Be ready for a 2nd crux right at the top just before the anchors.

Great route. If, like me, this route is near your limit, I have a few suggestions: (1) Dont bring just a standard rack. Take lots of 1s, 2s, and 3s. It eats them up. (2) Lots of runners. I botched the rope management on this. (3) Next time I will belay from the top, on the bolted anchor, and then rap off.
