Voodoo Rooves, 5.10+
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
5th Pitch- 35m- 5.10+/ Who knows what the real grade is on this pitch. It has 30’ of extreme burly off width. No grade was placed on the topo and few have ever repeated these last two pitches. Run up the easy chimney to an old bolt (2011) on the left wall at the base of the 10” crack. Face left (the most featured and better rock) and start to heel to toe your right foot shimmying up best you can. We took no big bros as the guide book and topo neither called for them, but you are advised to take one of the appropriate size to accommodate this section. Run out the climbing as some small features start to show up out left. The rock quality is not great, but better than the wall behind you. Eventually you can get a sandy grip up and left and turn around to get a better hold up and right. Mantle out of the crack onto easy ground. Belay from a tree up and left. The rappel tree is up and right across loose and bushy ground.
