4th clip at roof. This is where it gets its R from...


Climb two black tufas, then thru the roof. This route gets an 'R' rating because a fall before clipping the 3rd bolt could result in hitting the boulder at the base. Belayer must be attentive to avoid letting that happen.


Right of Mines of Moria route. There is a long 5-foot tall boulder at the base, with a sharp edge. Picture will be posted soon.


4 bolts, 2 permadraws, 2-bolt/chain anchor.

Climbed this without knowing it was R rated. Not "that" scary but in retrospect it was a little dicey clipping under the roof.
