Me doing "the single finest move in Josh"...

Description 

Once described as sporting the "single finest move in Josh", this gem of a route gets little play. It has a few things going against it: It is not on the best rock.
It is a bit of a circus trying to get the thing set up so you can try it and live to tell about it.
It has defeated some of the mightiest climbers of the day.
It is particularly good at draining blood from its suitors.
But... it is hard. It is funky, and it is a big roof. What more do you need?

Location 

Right out the big roof on Roof Rock. Can't miss it. Walk off is easy.

Protection 

The best method we used was a top rope, with a back rope and some pro placed on lead dealio. At one time there were two bolts on top.

The route is named after this black oozing mass that lives in the back of the roof. We asked the coffee-time ranger, Jerry the PinHead, just what it was. He says, "it is a living conjunction", to which we of course called bullshit. Anyway, the route name was born.

I remember back in the day crawling up in there to have a go, but after seeing the mountains of Guano I decided against it. The mega-king swing didn't look too appealing either.
