Good introduction to roof climbing. Turning the roof is the crux.
Roof crack in a huge boulder.
Gear to #3, no anchor.

This is an excellent route. Challenging and exciting. The crux is continually hard. The start has some questionable rock with stiff moves to open but the top is a beautiful hand crack problem. There are various ways to pull the crux just don't forget to use your feet! The jams are solid and the gear placements plentiful.

I soloed the FA's of this one and Roof Corner to the right in about twenty minutes. Jon Frank was there and gave them lame names. Never thought anyone would even do these things back then. I rated them both .10a. Had to climb up and down Roof Crack a couple of times to milk the handjams right. Way harder than Hobbit Roof in JTree, but almost identical.
I wanted to name them Crack of Noon (roof) and Piece of Crack (corner). The corner one is kind of awkward and crappy. Piece of Crap would also be a good name.
