Description 

Starts just left of the Great Roof's start and leads up and left to the anchors high above.

Like its name suggests, three roofs. Fortunately, none of them are large or severe. Pumpy and fun.

Protection 

Hike up and to the left of Goat Rock, about 1/2 of the way up, there's a trail leading towards the cliff face. Take it and traverse across some exposed yet easy rock to the top rope anchors for the 3 climbs beneath them.

Triple Overhangs starts off with a couple fairly strenuous and balancy moves and then eases off as you go higher. There are definitely two completely different ways to get past the first crux right off the ground which makes the climb fun to figure out. Good face climbing on solid rock!

To get on this climb, do not set up the obvious shiny bolts that service the overhang. You need to rappel off of the top bolts above the overhang area down the south most arete. You will find some janky bolts down there that may be better served backed up by the bolts you just rapped from.
