Leading up to the roof is easy enough, but the finish sure gets your attention.
It's a bit sequencey, although depending on your strengths I think there's different ways to tackle it. Initially I tried just the crack to finish and that's waaay hard!
It's very well protected so it's a fun challenge.
Technically it may be 5.10a, but as on onsight it's closer to 5.10b
