BETA PHOTO: Whoops ascends the obvious dihedral, and then the ...


This "aka" name for this route is a play on the name of a route named Foops, which is a striking roof problem at the Sky Top cliff in the Shawangunks. Ascend the left-facing dihedral and pull through the overhang above at its widest point. Alternatively, you can bypass the overhang on its right at a more moderate 5.9.


From the base of the Tennessee outcrop, walk uphill along the base of the cliff line to the foot of this obvious line. Take care when scrambling through boulders on your way to this route, as the rock at the base of Rose can be really slick.


Trad or TR.
