Climbs along the lip of the roof then angles up left through a bulge to the giant cobble. Starts out on the ledge to the right. Shares an anchor on the ledge with The Vultures are Waiting.

Green hangers.


Start at the belay bolt out on the ledge to the right of the belay platforms.

The lip traverse is vegetated and loose, about as sketchy to lead as it is to follow. The steep headwall part is probably the cleanest section of rock up there.
To make it full value skip the start and lead the 10d into the end of the 9.
