Climb the obvious, newly excavated dihedral to a roof. Follow the crack around the right side of roof and then up to a tree. Rap from tree OR,
climb up and slightly left to the Frankenberry anchors, OR,
climb up to the right until under the large roof above. Climb up a short but fun crack then traverse left under the roof. This variation, "Obamanation Continuation" was put up by Shannon Millsaps and Sean Cobourn on December 6, 2009. Lots of trundling of loose blocks involved. Downclimb to Frankenberry anchors which are at the pine below you.
At right side of Cereal Buttress, 30 right and uphill of Frankenberry. Until recent excavations, this wall was ensnarled with copious amounts of ancient poison ivy vines, dirt and loose boulders. A couple more ascents and rain storms and it should be pretty clean.
all trad to a 4 Camalot plus trees below and above the roof.

First pitch is a one move wonder. I really liked the second pitch.

Cool move out of the roof, bomber hands. Still a few plants growing in the easy corner down low.

Did the first pitch of this today. A bat flew out of the crack below the tree and almost hit my girlfriend in the face. Fun moves out the roof for sure.
Thought the roof moves felt like 5.9, only because there were no discernible feet when I came out the roof except for one dime edge.

Agree that roof moves felt more 5.9

Worth doing essentially for the couple moves out of the roof. The jams here feel solid and fun. Feet quite slick.

The second pitch continuation and resultant belay ledge make this climb a worthy endeavor.
