Checking out Under the Big Top before leading.
This is the biggest roof at The Quarries. There are several variations, and all are intimidating. The upper 12 feet fell off in the '90s making the climb harder than when it was first lead by Eric Engberg, in 1982, saying at the time it was 5.9.
This is on the climber's left end under the big roof. It is hard to miss.
Standard rack or TR.

This and Ladder Line, IMO, were the best lead climbs in the quarry, when I lead them in the mid '80s. UTBT had great protection and fun moves through and over the roof. I think we called it 10a back then.
