Description 

This is the first line of bolts to the right of North Overhangs with two cruxes. You'll encounter the first right after the first bolt -- it's a small roof, which you surmount by trending left on slopey holds above the lip. Pull over it on the left, grab a huge pinch, and take a rest. Then finish though a couple more bolts of thin crimps on vertical stone.

Cuidado! It's still cleaning up, but it's worth a lap if you're in the area. It is a bit easier for people who are taller than 6 feet (hard .12b?) but probably around 5.12c for most climbers.


Protection 

6 bolts to 2 bolt anchor, or clip a 3 or 4 more bolts and finish on Rooftop Rodeo's anchors just above.
