Description 

Good jams to the base of the roof. You can pull the roof using the loose plates, but it seems better to traverse to one side or the other and clip bolt anchors. The good part of the climb is the crack.

Location 

This is the crack splitting the uphill side of the boulder.

Protection 

Gear to #3 or #4 Camalot. If traversing to anchors, watch for the swing if you come off. The PG is more for the topout, though.

Fun route, but needs anchors below the roof If you decided to top it out beware, most all of the roof sounds hollow.

There is now a bolted anchor below the roof and this route is called 5.8 to these anchors.
