Description 

This newer addition to the Roof Area has cleaned up nicely and offers continuous movement without any stopper moves making it a good choice for those breaking into the grade or running laps.

Climb a short flared corner to a ledge and then over a bulge on mostly good holds to another ledge. Stem and lieback your way up a flared corner to a crux sequence pulling another bulge. Once past the crux vertical face on large holds gains the anchors.


Location 

Right of center in the Roof Area midway between Balrog on the left and Epiphany on the right.


Protection 

11 bolts, ring anchors

Pretty fun, sustained and straight forward climbing. Crux is just a pump test so save your energy. Last bolt before the anchors I skipped, but there's probably a good clipping stance somewhere there.

A pretty important right hand gaston(after a left hand crimp), which is also my favorite move in the entire climb, has broken off. I believe its after the 3rd or 4th bolt?

Yea, it was at the first bulge, at bolt 4? Now that this hold is missing, the move has become pretty height dependent. At 6'1", it doesn't seem to be much harder, but for shorter folks, this move probably bumps it up a grade.

Is the arete on route? If so, the missing hold isn't important at 5'6". (I found the upper bulge much harder, mostly due to pump.)
