Start Ben's Roof from the very back of the cave, matched on a large open handed undercut. Adds 8 moves. Graded for the original method (no kneebar "rest", direct exit).7c+ with the kneebar (rest) and the left hand finish. Maybe better graded as an 8b+ route.

Uh oh. Done all the moves and can do Ben's without the kneebar first time, most times. Question is, how long will it take to actually do...

Got into the kneebar & fell off the crimp/pocket move - progress!

Used knee bar so not sure on grade. Either way at 26 moves it's long!
