Another fun 2-for-1 climb. The first section is bouldery and committing through the short corner and around the roof. Then above turns into balancing back and forth across a sustained face with smearing, edging, and even a finger-lock thrown in for good measure. Very fun. The top section to the anchors is dirty, but it doesn't really take away from the climb.
