Oh yeah, the roof. I guess I must have blocked that part out. NTB since the gear is relatively trustworthy and close by, and great exposure. At least it's not a slimy, polished snowmelt-covered no-pro slab like what you do to get up to it.

No pro? Obviously you weren't scared enough. Look at all my placements in this photo! Interesting note: I pumped out and fell off the last hard move on the roof before the belay ledge, and in the process broke a carabiner. I had placed a piece in such a way that the biner loaded sideways over the lip of the roof. The gate was permanently bent at about a 45-degree angle from the main axis of the biner, but, surprisingly, the carabiner still held the fall, with the rope just lying in the open biner as if it were a cold-shut hook. There was good gear below me, so it was no big deal, but still it was a good lesson to watch my placements more carefully for this possibility.
