Thin slab moves past a bolt gain a small roof (gear to 2") and then onto a sloping ledge above. Leaving the ledge involves thin, vertical edges which reach a stance below the finishing headwall where thin, balancy and sometimes insecure moves (crux) finally relent just below the anchors.
A suberb climb packed with technical moves that requires a variety of techniques to succeed.
Located between Party Poodle and Fear of a Black Poodle.
5 bolts, gear to 2", ring anchors (shared with Fear Of A Black Poodle).

Tricky climbing above the roof. Its definitely all there and pretty safe. I didn't plug anything for the roof, but there are options for plugging a piece. Try to avoid using the corner to stem and traverse into the moves around and above the 3rd bolt for a real challenge.
Edit: This is not a sport climb. Its Arrgh-rated if you don't plug a piece between the first and second bolt. Would definitely be a painful fall to botch the roof.
