Description 

This is on the Lower Tier: Right Cliffband.

Follow 3 black hangers up a tan face to a roof. Pull the roof (crux) and work up, and right, at the second roof onto the steep slab above. Follow up to anchor for Drunken Bolting and Lichen It. I've only done this on TR, and it feels like 5.12-. If anyone nails it, let me know.


Protection 

6 bolts and a couple of midsized-cams to protect roof move.

The route up to the roof past three black hangars is a great, albeit short 11a with some of the best rock on the wall. I found the roof to be crumbly, sharp and not a lot of fun so I threw in the towel on that. Ray gave me the thumbs up to add a lower topanchor below the chossy roof so it might end up getting a shorter finish variation keeping it all on good stone.
