Fire up the slab around the corner and to the right of Resume. Take a chill below the roof. The Outsider fires straight through the roof. However, it won't deliver a crux until just below the anchor. After the roof, enter a right facing dihedral on very thin hands and an awkward crunched-up high step. Harder than it looks, but it is possible to milk the left edge of the of the right facing plate that forms the dihedral. The moves through the roof are worth the fight above.
QD only. This 95 ft route needs 10 draws, a 60 m rope, and something for the double bolt anchor at the top

Be VERY careful passing the large flake with the obvious chalked-up hold on the underside of the huge roof... it's ready to go any time now and will fall directly on your belayer.

The anchor for this route was replaced on 5/28/2009 with new hardware courtesy of the Anchor Replacement Initiative. Additionally, the loose hold below the roof was tossed and can be viewed at the hold museum located at the base of Learning to Crawl. The route may be harder now for shorter people. I may move the bolt in a bit, next time up to make it easier to clip, but climbers will need to use longer slings as there are some sharp edges above.
