Pull the roof to the left of Ledgarithm's third pitch (about 5.7). The first bolt is straight above the belay about 8 feet (all of the bolts are dark powder-coated grey). Then the route goes up about 8 feet more to the roof on the left. It looks hard but it's solid rock and there are great holds.
The second pitch follows the last pitch of Ledgarithm for three bolts and then moves right out over the steep terrain that is incredibly sandy and dirty. The climbing is quite sustained but well protected.
Climb the first 2 pitches of Ledgarithm then move left for the third pitch and right for the fourth pitch as a variation.
Walk off north (recommended), or rappel the route with a single rope.
Pitch One: 5 bolts to ring anchors.
Pitch Two: 12 bolts to a two bolt anchor.
- I would recommend bringing a few longer quickdraws or some slings for this route to cut down on rope drag. If your runners aren't long enough the rope will drag against the lips of the roofs.

This is definitely the way to finish the route. Really cool moves over the roof. It's not hard at all, you just need to commit. You can't see either of the first two bolts from the belay, but they're definitely there.

Yeah, Christian, maybe just a little more...it was scary! You're going to put me in Depends prematurely.

Finished off the free solo with this route. Didn't get to a point where I felt there was a definite crux but the rock seemed a bit cleaner than the lower pitches! And if I had been leading with a rope then I would give it a PG13 rating - well protected!
