Traverse under roof to clip third bolt and then crank off of shallow tips to high left rib. This should make you hurl. Enjoy a hands free rest at next bolt and set up for the sustained pockets of the classic arete finish on Utopian Vistas.

A stellar route, Jay, thanks. The roof moves are tough and super fun and the climbing on the arete above offers great position and nice moves. Kudos!
