Pulling the roof is fun once you find the key holds, then up a corner to some beautiful face climbing in the sun on some fun crimps!

It has been freed multiple times. I think that at worst it is a "R" not an "X." (Dave Fasulo has it as an "R" in his guidebook and he is usually conservative on gear ratings.) Although I may have traversed over to the crack on Locomotive Breath for gear. Really fun overhanging start followed by some great face climbing.
