Description 

2 pitches right through the middle of the roof (other routes on the left and right side of the same roof) on the left side of La Selva, then up to the bottom of the bowl.

Start at the huge huecos behind a 12' tree.

P1: 5.8 climbing to the roof, then using the huge jugs to work you feet up, then find a side pull ( reachy if you're short) to find more jugs and get your feet over the lip (5.9+). Climb a little higher past 9 bolts, 130 feet.

P2: 5.7 climbing straight up past 6 bolts.

You can rap with one 60M rope if you skip the first belay on this route and go to Warifikis on the left.


Protection 

bolts as above

I remember following my wife on the first pitch and thinking to myself that the roof bolting (where the crux is) was pretty spacey. My wife thought nothing of it. It was probably average for Potrero routes, but this was one of those times that I had to actually reflect on it.

I agree with Matt. There is a 20 foot run out between the last bolt on the face and the bolt on the roof. As a shorty, I had to make a few moves to get into a position to safely clip the bolt. It was fine, but, I would not want to fall while clipping. It would be a good 40 footer! The roof itself was fun. There are two new anchors just over the roof. This allows you to do the climb with a 60 M rope. If you are doing P2 (which I recommend, it's a beautiful jug haul) then continue climbing to the old anchors, it's a much better belay ledge. When you rappel, rap to the new anchors so that you can make it to the ground with your 60M rope.
