Climbing restricted due to tourist safety MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Another somewhat obscure but deserving route at the Overlook. It's unique in that after you pull the lower roof (the crux stuff) you're then face climbing up and across discontinuous cracks.

I don't recall this being all that dangerous but given the name, I have to assume there's some run out up on that face. My recollection is that you find gear here and there but have to pull some face moves without pro now and again.

Toula's original orange guide has this section of the cliff out of order. Not sure if it was corrected in his later editions.

Sin Ropa and Head Cheese are west (climber's left) of Everyday 5.3. And Sin Ropa was a lead, not a TR as Toula calls out.


Location 

To the right of the big tree that is just right of Mint Jam is a small corner (takes good pro about 15ft up where it opens up) that leads up to a roof area. Tricky and strenuous gear lead up to the roof. Once over the roof you're onto the face. Follow up the face climbing between placements. I've drawn the line going up the face but it might be that you trend right toward the arete (that would be the one left of Head Cheese/Everyday 5.3) and then up and back left.


Protection 

Take a mixed selection.
There's probably some tricky nutting to make the upper face safer.
