Sandstone Overcast, 5.9

3rd -4th Pitch Variation- 200’- 5.9/ Make an un protectable traverse left via white sandy scoops and holds to a large varnished scoop below a crack/corner to the left of the roof. A fall on this traverse would result in a broken leg, arm or both on a swing back into a corner wall. Either set up a station here to avoid rope drag, or set a single shoulder length sling to keep your rope(s) from snagging in the crack above and deal with considerable rope drag as you climb the easy corner above and start trending right on run out, but easy ground, passing the top of the third belay for Johnny Vegas and continuing to the very top of Johnny Vegas for a full 200’ rope stretcher pitch.
