Rough Around the Edges starts in the middle of the amphitheater, and is the first line to the left of the black section of the cliff. Start right of squatty pillar, working your way up to a lone bolt, below a short finger crack with black rock on the right. A 5.9+ move leads you to the break. From there, move up right into low angle dihedral passing good gear and 5.8 moves. This dihedral will eventually get steep while the crack tightens down and the difficulties begin. Face climb past bolts and a high medium wire. Bouldery at the top, with a very enjoyable mono pocket...
