Description 

Climb any route to the CA rap station, then work the thin crack up to the overhanging block in the left corner. She has some very nice roof moves. Some of the best exposure the wall has. Just awesome.

Location 

From the Crazy Alice belay station, climb the right facing corner up to the roof. Pull a few moves and grab the jugs up top. Heel hook and turn the lip. Scramble back down to the Crazy Alice Rap Station.

Protection 

Upper section took small gear and nuts. I used a #0 and #1 C-3, a #1 Rock Empire, and a medium nut. I didn't bother to put in anything in just under the roof, the move was there and placing would have been difficult.

A lot of fun, wish it was longer. I protected the roof with a #1 camalot.

I like to do this route as an extension of the Dihedral, Crazy Alice, or Dr. Cool Head.
