Pulling hard on the sharp holds above the roof and...
Start off with a fairly sequential (seems like everyone does it different) bouldery-style section that gets you to the roof, then pull up and get holds above, then pull like hell. Once you get established above the roof, the climbing eases.
Just right of the very popular Mickey Goes To Vegas is a good sized roof. This route goes right over this roof.
5 bolts to shuts.

A decidedly crimpy and bouldery start leads to a cool sequence pulling a roof that seems to favor the taller climber (I've seen a 12+ climber who is short come up a bit stymied on this one).
For some reason, given the angle of the rope as I led it, my lead ups to the red-point on Take the Money involved a fair bit of coin purse slapping. Watch your junk!

As a 6'0" climber I came away convinced that this route favors shorter, flexible climbers. My left leg dangled uselessly during the crux as I was unable to place it above the roof. I am relieved to have finally sent this mini-project.
