Description 

Climbs the big roof on the left hand side of the cliff. Tricky sequential moves at the second bolt and a cool move to an undercling then hard moves over the roof lead to a no hands rest. If not for the no hander it might get 3 stars. The slightly overhanging second half is no give away and involves palming up the rounded edge of a shallow corner then a hard traverse right to a huge jug. The upper section is the polar opposite of the first 25 feet.

Location 

Starts at the right edge of the big roof you walk under when you get to the base of the cliff.

Protection 

4 permadraws and 6 bolts to leaver biner anchors.

The top of this route is devious. I certainly felt more like an elf than a warrior on this one.

Pulling the low roof is really fun, then a full rest before tricky sloping rails and some strong moves to the chains. Felt more like a boulder problem right before a short climb.
