definitely a bold ground up ascent with its tricky gear. congrats jim on your efforts, particularly in the rain!
step back a way before doing this route and take note of the location of the two bolts visible from the ground, this will help you zero in on the route. after the second bolt pull the roof and trend a bit left as you climb up to locate the last bolt on the climb. a few relic bolts have been left in place near this final bolt, they are really neat to check out.
expect some solid 5.10 climbing with a few challenging placements on this one. the moves over the second roof are really fun!
