Description 

The crux is pulling the obvious roof at the 5th bolt. It is a very fun climb!

Location 

This is the 4th route from the right (south).

Protection 

6 bolts plus anchors. The 1st clip is a bit high. You may want to take a few small/med cams or a stickclip.

Either bring a stick clip or a couple cams. The first bolt is a bit high. Also, I rate it 4 stars in the future. Needs to be cleaned up a little. The roof is powerful, sequential and scary. An absolute must do for the area. Don't go out here without doing this!

Yeah, first bold is too high for my liking as well. But the climb stays sustained with the super fun roof. It makes you work to get the sequence, but like Robby said it is a must.
