Good protection takes some of the scare out of this roofy climb.
Starting in a left-facing corner, climb the corner hand/finger crack to a spacious ledge (see variation below). Continue up from the ledge to the big roof and follow another hand crack out to its end, then up the face to the top.
Variation - 5.8
Climb the left-facing corner and finish at the ledge without pulling the roof. Bolted anchors here make toproping easy. About 30'.
Starts about 15' right of The Sound of One Finger Bleeding. Rap down from trees at the top.
Small to medium gear; tape up for hand jamming. Build a gear anchor at the top.

The 5.8 lower section is a nice lead in its own right. Great crack climbing and good pro.
