I thought this route was contrived and not much fun. The crux roof pull is the hardest (and least obvious) of three ways through the roof, but it is the only one that is safe.
If you're going to do this route, make sure you like credit card crimpers- thats the name of the game here.

|I totally agree with Wilder. The roof can be done a few ways the obvious line straight up felt really hard at 10c (book rating) even 10d.|

|Pretty fun climb to me, because I do love the crimps. After the roof it's an easy jug fest to the anchors. We came here because Sunny and Steep across the way was incredibly crowded--doing this in the shade was way nicer than waiting around in the sun.|
