Rockfax Description
A fine piece of roof climbing. Head through the stacked roof to a good hold where a massive lock-off or a short leap is needed to reach the break under the roof. The crux of The Tippler remains. © Rockfax

βeta: Rounded hold can be reached easily and static.....hand jam in the break, heel hook on face and toe under the roof. . then stretch for the next break!

βeta: I think the thuggery comes in at the point you mention... right foot on broken hold out right, lock off with left arm on rounded hold, then rock up slightly and reach.

βeta: Nonsense to the idea that this is thuggery. Great moves under the roof, with good holds and adequate feet. The move get around the first roof includes a great heel-hook and is well protected. The next reach, however, beat me senseless. I think jumping is the only answer, and I don't have a small reach!

βeta: It felt bloody desperate in the midle of summer, in the blazing sun. The hold you go for is a looong way if your short.

βeta: I liked the fall so much I did it 3X! The target hold is actually good -- once you reach it. A belief move.
