Kip Henrie a couple of bolts before the hard bit.
Located in a National Forest Fee Area MORE INFO >>>

Description 

A thin, somewhat burly start to a brief respite on slightly less steep rock for a few bolts. A steeper, thinner section awaits as you climb up under the roof and trend right towards the narrowest spot of the overhang. A couple of pockets along the way help out, then a committing couple of moves on less-than-satisfactory feet gets you established under the roof.

A burly-but-well-protected move over the roof will have you heaving a sigh of relief (and cursing the local shrubbery).

After the roof, pass a set of anchors on your right while continuing up easier ground. Somewhat spacier bolts lead to a bit of a nerve-wracking top out on a ledge. Be wary of lots of small, loose debris on the top-out ledge.


Location 

Approximately mid point on the wall, this line leads up to the roof which dominates the left side of the wall, then follows the roof line as it trends right and up to a narrow spot in the roof.

Note that the anchors are set back on a ledge and aren't visible from the ground.


Protection 

10 bolts, chain anchors.

This route was quite a bit of fun, and makes the trek to the wall worth it. I didn't think the difficulty was .11c, however. Something around .11a was what it felt like to me.

This will get harder as the wall falls apart with each ascent. Also be very careful at the top with all the loose rock. A helmet is recommended.
