Pulling the roof on Weak Sister.

Parking listed elsewhere is on private property MORE INFO >>>


This one is all about the crux but that one move feels great to pull! Start as for Creature Comforts, clipping the first bolt and then moving up and left past another bolt to the roof. You guessed it pulling the roof is the crux. This one looks intimidating but the holds are bomb and the move is easier than it looks, and well-protected. Above the roof, easy climbing gains the two bolt anchor. Walk off left to descend.


This begins on the first bolt line on the far left end of the wall.


3 bolts, bolted anchor

Oh, yeah, this route is definitely all about the roof move! Seemed a bit stout for a 5.9, although well protected.
