A tough little number. Start up Nutcracker then move left to a thin finger/layback crack. James followed barefoot ALA Dresden.


Thin gear-tree belay or better from gear

Wow did you hit the little rest ledge at the lip of the roof? I have always come in from the left and placed large pieces just under the roof with a long sling on it then move over the roof and protect, this is a great and safe way to go, you also can tr the bottom direct start (10b x, rock over/mantle).

Yeah if you fell on the direct start, you'd likely be toast. Better to traverse in per above.
