Jerry's Roof is a classic powerful roof problem on the Cromlech Boulders in the Llanberis Pass. It was first climbed by Jerry Moffat in the late 1980's, and takes a central line of glassy holds straight through the large cave/roof 3m from the Llanberis Pass road.
Mina's ascent of the classic boulder problem is the first by a woman according to Ray Wood in his report on the DMM Website;
"Finally the uber-classic Jerry's Roof in the Llanberis Pass has had a female ascent (if anyone knows different we'd like to hear)."
The crux is a long move to a three-finger dish/pocket, which is known to be easier for tall people. Ray Wood commented;
"It took Sheffield based Mina Leslie-Wujastyk four or five sessions to get it dialled. She found the hardest part was controlling the body swing once she'd made what for her was a dynamic snatch for the pocket. Being short definitely makes this move harder."
