BETA PHOTO: Getting up the the roof.
Your help needed to keep this crag open! MORE INFO >>>


A good way to access the Toilet Bowl feature - not to be missed.

Start right of Cereal Killer on a clean slab below a small roof. Climb the slab on ledges trending right to below the roof. Go around the right side of the roof and up the face following a groove. Follow the bolt line (10b) or stay slightly right (easier) up to a ledge with a bolt anchor.


Below a small roof between Lemmings in Lycra and Cereal Killer.


Bolted but further protection can be found at the base of the roof using small pro.

From the ledge at the top of Route Awakening, you can traverse left a little bit to just below a finger/thin hands crack. I don't think this crack is part of another route, and its short, only about 15 feet long. Regardless, its a fun moderate trad lead (5.8?) and also gets you up to the toilet bowl feature. Protect with small aliens or tcu's.

The crack has been rated 5.9+, which I totally disagree with, I like the 5.8, 5.8+ rating much better. But either way, its a great line.

Whats the deal with the finger crack that goes straight up from the middle of the ledge? is that a route? does it lead to anchors, or just fizzle out? i want to to get on it but i'm not sure it goes anywhere.
