This route is very obvious from below. Climb up on the right side under the obvious block sticking straight out of the cliff face. Pull the roof and continue up. Get ready to take the best top rope whippers of your life, but watch out for the tree behind you.

Bolt anchors and chains that actually go over the edge up top. I still backed them up with a cordelette. I'm looking through old photos to see if I have any of this route.

a fun TR. 5.10a is about right if you go up the corner. If you start a few feet to the left then maybe 10b.
Helps to be ridiculously strong or to have the route dialed in so you don't pump out.
You get a good rest in the "booth" but the moves out and up to the right are a bit tricky..
