A higball V0 gets you to the first bolt, a V2 gets you to the second bolt, and over the roof. Runout 5.7 climbing finishes the route. The moves to the first bolt are easy, but falling would be very bad.
Left side of Haus Rock's southern face. Climbs through a short roof.
2 bolts, but really that's all you need.

This is a great climb with a well-protected crux. The moves through the roof are thoughtful, and pretty burly. I think this route could be lead all trad, but as a sport climb, it makes sense to me to add 2 bolts (one low, one high) to make it safe. I would be in support of this, as a fall from before the first clip would result in a trip to the hospital, and a fall up higher on the easier terrain would likely be fatal.
