Getting onto the good stuff. The crux is the roof ...

Description 

This is a grand adventure following a rather moderate dihedral crack system, with plenty of face holds and jugs along the way. The corner leans and twists to the left, finishing with a steep and off-balance crux protected by bolts to the apex of the corner/arete. A few jugs mantle you over to finish on the last few moves of Hungry Hungry Hobo and its anchors. Be careful when lowering to not pinch the rope in the groove of the final jug.


Location 

the right facing corner left of Hungry Hungry Hobo.


Protection 

Light SR #0.3 up to #3 C4. Stoppers work well too. 4 bolts at the top.

My favorite of the 5 we managed to do out there and it does keep getting more and more interesting. Can say that I didn't use the heel hook that both Manny's pic and mine show folks using, but it was certainly a twistedly fun lead! Most excellent line!
