This route goes straight up the Dead Snag rappel. Runout, but easy climging past the first set of chains gets you to the flakes below the roof. Beware of loose blocks here and there, but most of it is sound. Pull the roof past a bolt, and continue up the thin face past one more bolt to the ledge. 1 pitch.

Rob originally led this in August, 2006 without the bolts. The bolts were added in October, 2006.

Knock test all the flakes under the roof before you place pro under the roof. There's a flake that takes a #1 BD nicely, and seems solid; there's also a yellow alien placement a little farther towards the lip of the roof that I have taken several falls on. Have fun climbing through the roof and up the face; we sure did! ;)
