Halfway up chorus line.
Just past Tres Facile, is a small roof that can be clipped and popped, easier than it seems, continue up the face traversing right until you reach the second line of bolts. Go up these utilizing the angled holds, and enjoy the view.
2 bolts for anchors, and 6 draws for the climb. Rappel off.

The only hard move on the route is the crux, which occcurs pulling the roof above bolt #1. Some interesting foot switching, but very positive hands and feet.

I kinda think this is HARDER than it looks. All the holds on the mini roof seem to face the wrong way. CAUTION: don't climb the corner to the right of the roof... clipping from there is not easy and you take a nasty swing if u fall before you can clip.

Vincent is right about the initial roof. It is the hardest move on the route. Clip high first, and then pull hard.
I solo'd this route once in the early 90's, no problem. All the moves are smooth, and footholds are bomber.
The repel off has an overhang, and sharp edge so don't swing, sit in your harness for the repel, cause you'll be well off the wall for most of the trip down.
Great exposure. Really fun climb.

Roof is all there, big jugs, HUGE feet, bomber bolt if you pop. Chorus line is an appropriate name. Way more fun than Choir Boy.

Every bolt on this route after the first 2 were old, rusty, 1/4" spinners. Not very confidence inspiring, regardless of difficulty.

All of the original bolts on this route are 3/8" 5 piece rawls...not 1/4"ers.

The first bolt has been replaced and is bomber! Thanks to the bolt fairy that did that. The second bolt's hanger has seen better days. A follower on this route is looking at a bit of a swing if they fall at the crux - it may be possible to fiddle in a piece of gear above the crux to prevent that.

I've had a lot of friends have trouble with the roof at the start (could be a height issue) but I find it extremely fun and a great route for someone learning lead.
