This is basically roped bouldering, but it's still worth a go. The crux is fun and hard, despite the meat of the climb being maybe 15 feet or so. Follow the line of bolts to the right of The Pixie. Find the crimp right below the roof, bust left to giant jugs, match on the higher one, and then do a heel hook dyno to set your right foot in the lower jug. Reach up to a right handed pinch, left to a sidepull crimp, right out to a crimp in the roof's dihedral, left to another sidepull crimp above the crappy right hand hold you pinched, and bust right out to a sloping crimp below the bolt, iron cross style. Left goes to a jug, get a knee bar to clip, blah blah blah. Without giving away too much, make sure your shoulders are strong! Basically, this is 5.10 to a hard V6 boulder problem. Best to continue upward, joining the upper crux of Rooftop Rodeo.
This is covered in lichen and is still cleaning up, but the essential holds have been brushed.
8 bolts to the old belay anchor halfway up The Pixie; 11 bolts if you keep going on up and hit the anchors for Rooftop Rodeo.
This is right of The Pixie.
