boulder start is slightly sketchy but ok. the dihedral is #2 to #3 camalot. interesting moves to exit above the roof part (but not very hard). excellent route after the start. No more finger gear once you enter the hand crack

anchor is just above the steep roof part, but you can't seem it from the ground
