Although technically in the Fantasy area, this climb is actually 2 roofs to the Right of the Fantasy Roof.

P1: Climb the dihedral until you hit the roof. ... Traverse left (for about 30 feet) until you come to a small triangle ledge and belay at the bolts.
P2: Climb up and around the arete to finish.

Having a double rope setup would be REALLY nice on this climb.

The first pitch of this route has some great stemming moves, but we had to chop down dozens of large spider webs to make the ascent. If someone else had climbed in recently, it would probably be much more enjoyable.

The traverse is very awkward for us taller folks, especially at the beginning.

The Thompson guide lists the dihedral as P1 and the traverse as P2. Did it this way instead of continuing on to the top.
