One hardish move with a wire over your head.

All the pins are gone - pro isn't bad but if you fell at at the crux you could swing into the dihedral hard.

DL classic, though that doesn't really mean it is all that great. Bring lots of runners and don't be afraid to use them. That move under the roof is 9+ for sure man...

I really wish I had brought my ball-nuts for the move under the roof!

After the roof you can go left on easier terrain or step over to the right above the roof. I placed a brown tri-cam at my feet and up and right a bit over the "Laundry Chute" to finish.

A short but devious crux. Commit to the face.
