Comments: fun climb. pull lower roof to sort-of slab to garden-variety Taylors block-stepping. A good chance of getting pelted from the tourist deck adds to the fun

Comments: echoing the previous comments, the crux is exiting the pod/topping out. a fun route and, at least to the pod, a good lead for newer climbers (protects well)
