Curtis on the crux of The Roach (11a)
Start on the flake and follow it up until you reach the crux (4th bolt?) then traverse right to the rail and continue upwards.
Watch out for the lose hold at the 3rd bolt.
It's definitely the most obvious route down there, right on the flake, right in the middle of everything.
6 bolts to lower off.
Sean making the crux on the Roach (11a) look easy.

Just an FYI the loose hold at the 3rd bolt finally got pulled off.

The traverse is at the 3rd bolt, but who's counting. I struggled to find anything loose on this route. Not sure what the fuss is about, I would imagine it has cleaned up since the FA. Bottom line: Its a great route, and defiantly don't avoid based on rumors of being loose or choss!

Agree with Marty...def. not PG-13. Very well protected and clean falls.

Please take the PG-13 off the rating. No way it belongs.
