Awesome climb, corner to layback to roof/corner to layback
Enduro-crux with solid placements all the way up!
This route has a bad habit of eating gear, so be careful with your placements so they don't become fixed gear!
climb is obvious overhanging corner on east side of main junkyard area
Solid gear (normal rack), make sire not to leave it in the climb as there are always a few cams that are fixed somewhere in the initial arch of this climb.
Moving on the second roof. '97.

As of 25-Aug-2011 there was a Wasps nest inside the creacks right at the anchors. Someone had written a note in chalk on the wall at the start of the climb warning me about their presence but I figured heh... maybe that an old note. It wasn't and I got a strike to the chest. Luckly I had just clipped the second anchor and dropped out of range as the little buggers swarmed... can't ruin my OS!

Grate route! I would give in an old school 5.9++

This is as good as 5.9 gets. Felt stout at the grade, much harder than New Yosemite. Definitely a must-do if you're at the Junkyard, even if you lead much harder.

Way too insecure at the crux to be 10a...definitely 9+!! (but very well protected) One of the best routes I have ever done in my life.
