Description 

Climb Commodus or Spartacus and continue onto the ledge. From here, work big positive holds up and right out the steep prow. At the lip of the roof, make a very strenuous clip or commit to an intimidating dynamic move to a bucket and then clip. Hike your feet up above the roof and traverse left to the anchor.

Protection 

11 bolts (4 fixed)

missed the OS but the route was fun and probably the best exposed route at the ranch. Looking forward to going back and getting this one.

Incredible exposure on this route!!! I tried it at the end of the day and only got through 4-5 of the 6 fixed bolts. I hope to try this one fresh next time.

Awesome route with great exposure and a quick pump. Bolt 5's gate was frozen shut which made that clip extra spicy. It had rained a few days before so if you're attempting this route after a recent rain be aware that bolt 5's gate might be stiff.
