Climb easy slab up right to an arete then pull the crux moves on the roof to easy face holds ending at ring anchors. Avoid the large block at the top of the roof marked with a white chalk "X" It may not stay solid forever. There are great jugs to either side of it.


Just right of PBR.


Five bolts to ring anchors.

This route is still pretty dirty, esp at the top. Those loose blocks at the top would definitely ruin your day if they decided to cut loose while you were climbing it. The crux is a little perplexing: big moves of small holds that aren't obvious. Once you clip that fourth bolt the crux is essentially over, you just have to hang on over the loose blocks.

Someone ought to pull off the block with the big X marked on it. I put a big X on the top after you pull the roof cause it's easy to stand on mistakingly.

Great route though, the crux is a surprise after the lower half being so juggy.

I'm not sure if I just screwed up the sequence or if some holds have broken off (I didn't see any loose blocks or chalk x's), but the crux of this route felt at least a full grade harder than Corona and harder than either of the other two 5.11c's I've done in the past week.
