Description 

Climb out the roof using thin gear to rap anchors below the roof. This roof has repelled some strong climbers' free attempts (most notoriously those of Hidetaka Suzuki, who put up a 13d seam at Jtree on gear)


Location 

Obvious crack through the roof


Protection 

All clean gear. This route is in soft rock and has seen numerous free attempts-if it hasn't gone already, someone will do it eventually. NO PINS!

do to my height, i chose to do a small campus on this first bit, its easier than struggling to keep my feet on, and is only one move. plus, i get a really bomb hand jam right after, that bigger people dont get.

this is the last piece of gear i can get in before moving to the campus. if you are taller you can get one more .75 before.

This route was rumored to have been freed by Tom Moulin in 07 but I haven't spoken to him about it. Any info for potential repeaters/info on Tom's send would be appreciated.

I haven't sent this route yet, but i can say the route is doable for shorter people. I'm about 5'0 and I've done all the moves but one, but my height does make it a little bit harder. there is a good foot before moving into the campus section that is a little bit reachy making my body almost fully extended before lowering into the campus, which makes the swing a little rough to control. Thats about as far as I'll go with beta. Other than that, the route is amazing! such a great line! i hope it sees more climbers soon!
