Part of the Roaches HVS challenge. We got the silver medal, then it went dark on us after skyline. All routes attempted on-sight. Fun day! Thanks Dan and Flavio!

Nice. Probably harder than the sloth. Good fist jams over the lip then grovel!

Practice for the sloth? I found this substantially harder! The jams do go in nicely at the roof though
