I saw someone climb further and they missed the finishing finger crack leading to the top of the ledge above the roof. Instead they stayed in the loose crack to anchors up higher. Go left when you are just next to the roof and get on the clean finger crack.

Super fun climbing, a great route for sure! Long, engaging, and sustained throughout. A single set of cams from blue MC to #3 C4 worked well. Make sure you bring lots of slings though! I wish I would have just extended every piece as it would have avoided the awful rope drag I had towards the top.
I didn't know that you could rap left to anchors for Closer. So instead we did a short 40' rap to the right to the anchors for Vertical Addiction. The rap from there took almost every inch of our 70m.
Lastly, if you're headed up this route soon, the bolts on top have webbing that could probably use replacing. I'll bring a few quick-links and rap rings for next time I'm up there.
