THIS IS AN OPEN PROJECT AND HAS NOT SEEN A FREE ASCENT AS OF 3/5/11.
Start underneath the overlaps below the slab. The crux is getting between the 1st and 3rd bolt, I would recommend a stick-clip for the second bolt, don't wanna take that whipper onto the first. Finish straight up to the anchors below the roof.
Honestly, I have only tried the moves once, but they are reachy and desperate (not that fun). I may go back to try it eventually, but if you're over there and bored, give it a go!!!
It is the second bolt line from the right (see pic).
6 bolts, 2-bolt anchor w/rings.

I redpointed this route after cleaning the holds(still a bit dirty in spots) and figuring out the funky sequence/boulder problem. This is kind of a one move wonder, with a hard sequence in between the first and second bolt. After figuring out the powerful undercling-press-move, it didn't seem too bad, but it took me a little while to realize that was the way to do it. Since it's a boulder problem with a rope and super funky, I think a soft 5.12b rating is appropriate. Could be easy if you're really tall because you could reach a high crimp from down low. Anyway, thanks for the route, Jason, it's fun to uncover old projects!
