About to get goofy on the roof.

Description 

This is a mellow line that tackles an awkard roof, low on the East Wall. Starting a bit right of the bolted line of Split Decision, climb up right-trending crack/ledges to a looming, left-facing roof. The crack system through the root eats ear, so plug and chug through the roof and on to the easy slab above. Work a bit right and finish on a ledge with a 2-bolt anchor.

Location 

You will find this goofy line on the far side of the East Wall. Hike up the approach trail, turn right at the fork and follow it to the 'end'. The low roof will be obvious.

Protection 

Single set of cams to 3", 2-bolt top anchor (shared with Dirty Sanchez).

The crack and roof take good gear, but the slabs above and below might feel a bit sparse.

Had a wet summer and the route was pretty overgrown and dirty. The roof was still fun, and it does take good gear.
