Perin biking up Bicycle Man, hitting the crux.

Description 

This route starts vertical and slowly tips past vertical. The first part is on huge jugs then you pull the roof onto some pocket pulling (the crux). Endurance is definitely a factor.


Location 

Right of Blunt Arete, it's the route that pulls the small roof 2/3 way up.


Protection 

11 bolts to chains.

If I remember correctly, I felt the crux was the thin moves above the "roof" that the description and guide book mention. (I'd call it more of a bulge, but I guess it's as close as you can get to a roof in conglomerate)
