Description 

Climb a short vertical crack and then head out the prominent roof which goes much easier than appearances suggest due to the many small edges for your feet and some massive flakes for your hands. Two stars out of five.


Location 

Just left of Monkey Business.

Gear to 3.5"

Fun route - sorry I didn't lead it as it takes good pro and is extremely fun. Use flakes behind you for pro and feet. Route provides excellent hand jams after turning the lip. Fun, fun fun

It's easy for the rope to get stuck in the cams in the roof crack when you're belaying the 2nd (like on lots of roofs). A big hex once you pass the lip (a #11 works nice but something a little smaller might go too) makes everything smooth. Short but nice.

Last time I did the route I took my shirt off and stuffed it in the crack to keep the rope out of there as I passed the lip. I think there was a stuck Camalot in there too that Sooze bootied? Now-a-days I guess you could stuff a beanie in there instead of a shirt. Nice route!

Good fun. I'd avoid pro-ing in the plates overhead. They're not loose but a leader fall with pro up there would put serious stress on them. Good pro in the crack with a BD #6 and #3. #4 after turning the roof.
