Of the 3-4 routes that pull this roof area, I think Mental Block is by far the best. I gave this route a bit of work and the red point was totally worth it. Pretty amazing moves all over this route (Heel-toe cam leg lock, knee bar/scum, and a balance-y layaway). Though it is short, it definitely deserves more attention.
