This route is 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 route.

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).

double to #2 plus #4 for the roof protection
