Description 

Find the holds that will get you over the roof, then figure out how you are going to get to the next bolt, which is five or six feet left of you and up. After that it's long reaches and high stepping to jugs and an "oh crap" move to finish. Really great route!


Location 

Second route from the left that climbs over the large roof.


Protection 

8 bolts to bolted anchors

Weird off-balance big moves at the start to an easier face above. Easier if you're tall, some of the intermediate holds aren't that good. Trust those feet though, the rock is really textured.
You'd have to tunnel vision pretty bad to log some airtime at the top, jugs abound.

Watch your draws, no matter which length you clip they'll either run across sharp edges or the spine of your biners will rest on a lip.
