Glen C on the roof.

Description 

From a good ledge behind the large boulder, stand on the boulder, clip the bolt, and engage the steep rock on commiting holds to gain a ledge 8' up. From there angle left up a ramp. Climb up the steepening wall on a featured column to the big ledge/cave before the spectacular finish and crux - the roof. After resting, reach out right up and over the large roof on jugs. Spectacular position!


Location 

At the top of the trail to the wall, turn left and look for some boulders and two black streaks on the wall. The climb starts at the left streak. Climber and belayer need to scramble up and behind these boulders in a slot to a good belay ledge. Lower off anchors thru space to the jungle floor far below the belayer! Watch for critters when retrieving the rope from the bushes.


Protection 

10 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.
