Another Roadside Attraction, 5.11R

5th Pitch- 60m- 5.11/ I found this last pitch to be the most enjoyable (if I could even use that wording at that point and time en route) of the day. The 5.11 climbing on this pitch involves just a few moves at the grade: somewhat intense lay back moves to pull out of the roof capping the chimney towards the top. Start into the chimney and enjoy stemming up the twin cracks. The chimney eventually widens beyond stemming. Take a vertical crack on the left wall for a short section until right below the roof on a ledge. Make several moves at the grade to pull the roof out to a ramp and continue to a belay pod below several bushes and trees at a full 200’. There is an obvious small ledge and good cracks about half way up that allow you to easily divide this final pitch up if desired.
