At the crux.

Description 

The movement on the route is good. Kudos to the peeps who put up the routes on this wall. Start climbing a slab to a roof and follow steeper terrain to the anchors.

Location 

The third route on this wall if you are counting them from left to right. 60m rope will get you back down.

Protection 

8 bolts protect this route. 2 bolt anchor.

I think the roof is height dependent. I (5'6") was perplexed for a bit and the trick was dynoing for a key hold my taller partner could reach from the deck. I tried everything I could to work up and reach it statically and I just couldn't. Once I had that hold pulling the roof was a piece of cake. This roof felt harder to me than the one to the right on Man in the Yellow Hat (5.10a). Good bolting at the crux though so this shouldn't stop shorter leaders.

Agree with the person above me. Very height-dependent crux at the roof. A dyno to a blind hold is needed for shorter folks.
