BETA PHOTO: Gary at the Crux moves of Hot Rize.
This route goes up the moderately angled face just to the left of Cold Frize and climbs directly over the roof. The crux is where the slab gets steep right at the bolt below the roof. Some weird off balance friction moves that seemed a little tough for 10a. Pulling the roof requires a fun little two finger undercling, with a long reach to a jug above the roof. The rest of the route is a strung out cake walk to the anchors.
9 or 10 quick draws. The bolts are old button heads with nasty hangers. Probably best to be done as a top rope as falling from the roof looked like you would hit the lower angle slab below pretty hard.
