This route uses the first row of roof permadraws
The dihedral in the middle of the cave.
The mega classic endurance fest of the section. Start by sending Pet Semetary, take a shake, then dramatically pull out across the entire length of the roof. its the second row or permadraws on the roof. Watch out the crux is at the end!
Note: Going out midway on the roof is a 5.11c
The bottom section of Rage, ending at the roof.
Another huge roof. The third set of roof permadraws. Note: the bottom to the roof goes at 5.12b
Slope-fest to the roof
Alternate start to Christine, starting in the library and climbing out onto the slab.
Start just outside the library, on the slab-face. Heady clipping down low, but the crux is up high!
