This route has a great start and finish. Climb past three bolts to some 4th class terrain. Clip another bolts and follow the left facing crack. Pull the roof and the anchors will be awaiting you. The holds for clipping the anchors aren't the greatest and can be dirty after it rains.
This climb is at the end of the ramp, to the right of Leading Should Feel This Way. Look for three bolts that are closely placed, to the left of a blocky chimney. Tough to clean when being lowered, may be better for someone to clean on second.
6 bolts to ring anchors. It is possible to place a piece of pro in the 4th class if you are not comfortable on the terrain.

The roof is really fun. All the holds are there for good clipping. From the last bolt keep your hands going right for better holds. If you try to go straight up you'll be struggling. Cheater tree at top to grab to clip anchors from if your about to bail.

This route is 5.9......maybe 5.10 on a high gravity day. Bottom half is harder than the roof, all you have to do is hold on.

The "cheater tree" came down this winter and was thrown over the edge 4/5/14 so no one would hang on it and fall with it.
