Andrea blazing up the roof of magic helmet.

Description 

The second star is for turning the roof which is pretty neat. The rest of the climb is pretty mellow. Crux is probably the reach to a hole above the lip of the roof. The reach is a bit farther than you would like. But you can clip the bolt from below the roof.

Location 

right up the middle of the wall through the center of the roof.

Protection 

5 bolts plus chains

The roof is a lot of fun, although I left a bit of skin on a sharp hold.

Fun warm up for the 10c to the right. Pretty straightforward climbing up over the roof. The holds are there, so don't be tempted to use the left wall.
