Description 

This is a challenging and worthy route!
Crux comes just below the top, where you have two option: tweak your fingers into flared blue tcu sized jams or slap out to the arete just left of the crack for an exciting and athletic finish. Of course, those with large digits only have the later option. You don't really need tape, as Binghams guide suggests- its not that rough. This thing feels a hell of a lot longer than 40 feet after you've climbed it!


Location 

The crack that essentially shares the start with redtail, but then leans to the right.


Protection 

cams- at least a full run- blue tcu's to a big hand piece. Also bring a lot of extra draws to finish on Redtail (or Seasonal employment, though less desireable because its anchor is so far out left). Roughleg has no anchor, but could use one. A 70 meter rope is required to lower off of Redtail
