Description 

A thin and devious route that is probably a bit of a sandbag at 5.10d. Start left of the obvious chimney on the left side of the wall. There are two routes on this wall- this is the leftmost route. Follow the bolts up and left through a roof, clip a bolt and then make the run (20') to the anchors.


Location 

Leftmost route on the wall, open shut/clip in anchor.


Protection 

7 bolts

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.
