EDIT: Went out today 5/8/09 and took it over the roof. From the bolt continue unprotected 5.10 stemming to a good jug below the roof, and a good sidepull at the lip of the roof. place a blue alien at the lip, and a orange TCU just over make a hard pull to a finger lock and crank over. 20 more feet of off angle finger crack leads to a 2 bolt anchor. Can TR with single 60m

Did the route as one pitch. Kinda Scary! I definitely didnít do the right start and almost cratered before getting my first piece... The jug at the roof is super hollow sounding... Didn't/couldn't get gear before pulling the roof(I ran out of small pieces). I Only managed to get a BD .75 about 10 feet above the roof. Very glad I didnít fall!

NOTE: A BD #4 or 5 is nice for the short offwidth section
