I cleaned and TR'd this line, but never led it. I think Josh Smith was the first to do the lead.
I still have a pile of info on most of this stuff sitting around somewhere, maybe at some point I'll dig it out and upload it.

This climb has a 2-bolt anchor with quicklinks. The anchor might benefit from these being replaced with chains.
I think I heard somewhere that Walt W. put the anchors in here a while ago, so people in the houses above would be less aware of climbers below.
Oh yeah- this roof is amazing and way bigger than Lens Roof at the Overlook- wish I could climb it. Getting to the lip is powerful and hard already, and the next 2 moves are still not clear to me.
I'm not a good person for rack beta for this climb, but 2 each of #0.5 and #0.75 camalots is probably a good idea.
