I'm assuming this is the correct route. Fixed anch...

Description 

The left of the two cracks which go up the right side of the Party Wall. Fixed anchor is visible at the top.

Steep for the grade but loaded with huge bucket holds. The rock was surprisingly solid and overall it was an enjoyable route.


Location 

When you are looking at the party wall from on top of the large, flat boulder there are two obvious cracks going up the right side of the Party Wall. A fixed anchor is visible at the top. The left crack is the one you want. The right hand crack goes at 5.7 and is very rotten and wet.


Protection 

G rating. This climb ate a whole rack of BD Camalots.

Does anyone know the name of this route?

No name. It has been top-roped and led many times over many years so the first ascent is lost to history. There are some ancient pitons on this wall on the roof route. The AMC climbed here back in the 1960s.

Has the roof gone free???

Joe,

The 5.8ish route with the small overhang on the topo has gone free many times. I assume you are talking about the big roof to the left of that route. It has not gone free. Good project for you.

There is also another big roof at the north end between "Disneyworld" and "Something Dirty" that may go free if you like hanging upside down jamming a crack.

I may have to try and hook up with you guys there soon to give one or both a try. Thanks.

I was eyeing the roof-crack to the right of Disneyworld. Above my grade, but certainly climbable! Looks great!

Any photos? I like hanging upside down. . .

I don't have any photos of the roof on the north end with the crack in it. Next time I'm there I'll take one. Here is the roof next to the 5.8. I marked it in red. I'm not sure if it will even go. If it does it is 5.harder-than-I-can-climb.

Ross Roof 5.20?

Yes, that is the line I was looking at. Brian, let me know when (if) you guys go out there. I would love to give that roof a try. Thanks.
