Description 

This root easy to spot since it have a cool looking roof and looks harder than it is. It is more difficult to spot top anchors , but they exist , good and you need to spent some time to find them from the ground.
Good long line. The photos on this site by Blitzo and SketchySam very inspiring to climb this root.
The crux - is pulling the roof. You can do it by split and reaching for holds on the face, or climb straight in overhanging fist crack on left side of the roof [ what I did ]


Location 

left from Dagger about 40 feet


Protection 

double to #2 plus #4 for the roof protection
