Protection From the Virus

Start just left of Lemons, Limes, and Tangerines, following the bolts over the left half of the roof. There's a massively chalked up and bomber undercling at the start of the route (but basically worthless when climbing it). We had some discussion about the best or proper way to turn the roof. Our conclusion was that as long as you're reaching up to the ledge on the left side (~3 feet above the roof) from where you're coming from, it's the route. Continue up the thin left face.
4 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

Holey Moley, this is a pumper! Key to the crux is a left hand crimper and a right hand sloping ledge. Small left foothold and "Go for the dyno!" Or if you can hang on, slow, balance move to the big, upper ledge.... A very fun climb!
