Gave this sucker a try yesterday. The fist three bolts are really fun and pretty exposed, but the roof is KILLER. I couldn't get up and over it onsight, I'll go back and redpoint it sooner or later.
Be warned though, you have to use a loooooong runner on the first bolt if you want a to have any slack for clipping once you reach the roof, but, this pretty much makes the first bolt useless. Don't fall until you reach the second bolt if you can help it, have some spotters ready just in case too. It's a rough walk out with two working legs, it'd be hell with some broken bones.
