Description 

This route follows the left line of bolts under the roof. It has very interesting face climbing and dihedral climbing moves up until you reach the roof and after that thuggy jug haulin' gets you to the chains.

Protection 

Four or five bolts to chain anchors

Also a Robbie Williams route and I believe he called it Buddha Direct. Two cool cruxes. Great little route. Again, kudos to Robbie for this one.

The slabby corner route is called the Ramayana Story. The Ramayana is a shadow play in Indonesia done with puppets. It is the classic struggle between good and evil. I jacked a 300 pound boulder off the route on rappel before climbing it. This was the struggle between good and evil, as the route was done ground up on lead and the bolts were drilled from hooks, but before I led it, I knocked the huge rock off as it was moving and creaking when I hung from a hook off the huge mass. The appeared to be much harder after that.
