Leading Should Feel This Way

This route climbs the large roof to the right side of the crag. Start at a very high first bolt (consider stick clipping, placing a small cam, or getting some balls). Clip the second bolt below the large roof (decking possibilities). Pull the roof using the small rail and some heel hooks. Clip the next bolt and shake out. Begin to follow the bolts slightly to the right and then left toward the anchors. Fight the pump through this section and find good rests for the run to the anchors. This route is the gem of the crag.
This route climbs straight through the middle of the large roof on the right side of the crag. From the left, this is the fourth bolted route.
6 bolts and ring anchors. You can use a TCU or nut to protect yourself before the first bolt.

Fun roof pulling and sustained overhung climbing afterward. As for the first bolt, please opt for the stick clip or a piece of gear lower down rather than just "growing some balls" if you are not 100% solid at the grade.

Excellent route. I agree with BrianWS, definitely protect yourself before the high first bolt. A #0.4 BD cam works perfect. I placed a #1 BD cam after 2nd bolt and overhang, then removed the #1 after clipping the 3rd bolt. Probably the best climb at the crag.
