Tim commiting to the top out
Start on the arete where the stream runs under the boulder move right through the seem passing crimps and move to the slopey top out. The top out is the crux by far which requires a long move to a crimp and then rocking over using a heel hook. The route gets it name from the first ascentionist doing a barrel roll for the top out.
The top out is committing and should be padded and spotter well.
On the Beaver Dam Boulder this starts on the arete you reach when you approach the boulder and moves right through a seem and up the hold at the base of the roof then moves over the roof.
Pads and spotters. Make sure it is multiply of both.
