Start as for the 5.8+ face climb. Once you reach the ledge, go up a ramp and pull a large, pumpy roof to gain the top of the cliff. Using a small tree trunk at the top of the roof would likely downgrade the climb to 5.8, but without it, it goes at a stiff 5.9 for the move.


This is on the right side of main face, to the left of the gully climb.


The pro placed before the roof is questionable, making the roof all the more scary. If you can hang on, the small tree above the roof accepts a sling to protect the difficult top-out.

A fall while pulling the roof would not be good. You would certainly hit the ledge before anything could catch you.
