I thought this route was great! Some spice down low, with some very thin moves up to and left under the roof. The only thing keeping you off the ground here is a #0 TCU below your feet. Above this, some fun steep jamming and jugs lead to the top. Well worth a visit if you're in the area or looking for something new.

Instead of coming in from the right, go up the thin seam for some added hard moves... how hard? Good question. 5.10+ or so? Pro would be real thin on lead. I've always been a TR hero every time I've been over there.

The direct direct 11c way above the roof is silly hard. I'm saying something has broken above the roof. It's desperate and this time out, a demoralizing shut down for me. We used to call the direct direct The Middle Hand of Darkness. (in fact, I'll add it as a route right now...)
