Description 

Climb the left-facing corner to its top at the bottom of the large right-facing corner marking the right end of the huge roof system. Climb up this dihedral to a scary, committing move up and our left onto the arete and onto a sloping ledge. Traverse 10' left to a small right-facing corner/crack system. Climb up this and then follow right-arching cracks and features up to the top of the cliff.
A direct send straight up the seam through the overhanging face above the main dihedral has yet to be done. That would be great.


Location 

The center of the Rods'n'Guns Wall has a huge ceiling blocking the upper portion of the cliff. This route climbs the sharp right-facing corner at the right end of this roof system.


Protection 

Standard trad rack. Tricams are helpful at one spot, but not absolutely necessary. There is one bolt on the route.
