Follow edges and a few small breaks up a steep and tenuous face. A small tcu helps protect a spacious spot.
Roof cranking fun and worth a run.


The Straw is on the middle tier and lookers left of the main trail. It shares one of the taller croppings of solid rock with London Bridges, Crumble Cake, and a few others.


Several bolts, a small selection of tcu's, and a bolted anchor.

I only clipped four bolts on this one and plugged a small cam. I don't think there are 7. Crux comes right at the top.
