This route goes through the right side of the roof, just right of Salmon song. 30' of not so good climbing gets you to the roof where the fun begins. Pull the roof and jam the crack above.


The route 6' right of Salmon song. See photo.


Pro to 3.5.

one of the best 5.9 cracks I have ever done.

There is a tiny offwidth pod for about a move or two towards of the route. It would be worth taking a #4 C4 along to protect this section. Furthermore, the bottom slabby section leading up to the first roof doesn't have a lot of places for pro. I found a small crack which allowed me to place a fairly good 0.1 X4.

Don't let the beginning scare you away. The two roofs make up for it and then there is a long sustained section that keeps on giving. Excellent 5.9
