Description 

1st pitch, 5.9+ 20m. Start in the beautiful hand crack in the right-facing corner.
Climb to reach the bolted belay station on the ledge, under the big roof.

2nd pitch, 5.9 20m: Pass the big roof on its left.
Once past the roof, follow the wide diagonal crack up and right.
Superb!

At the final anchor, belay your second with a setup that allows you to feed out slack under tension.
If your second doesn't succeed the traverse under the roof, he or she will swing out, away from the wall.
If this happens, the best option is to lower them down to the ledge so they can try again.


Protection 

The wide diagonal crack above the roof will take a large cam but you're on buckets so it may not be needed.
Bolted belays
30 meter rappel to the ground.
