Roger's Corner

 

Rogers corner is a 5.9 located between the Great northern slab area and Princely Ambitions.  It starts atop a short scramble and has 2 pitches that can be linked as 1.  The first is a 5.8 with a short roof pull towards the top and the second's crux comes about halfway up with a roofpull that has a few different cracks.  I find that if you go up the obvious crack and move right using the large flake crack for a few moves before moving back into the initial crack provides the best climbing.  It stays fairly sustained from the midpoint up but has the right features just in time and is a true classic.
