The climbing through the roof is all-time, ultra classic. Unfortunately the crux is the unsettling slab above the roof. The rock on the slab is flawless, but the climbing just isn't very fun. Definitely worth it just to climb the roof though.

You need at least a 60m rope to descend, and even that requires extreme caution.
