|A very nice route. One hard move comes right where things get overhung near the top and before crack opens to allow a finger lock (my opinion).|

|The crux felt pretty thin even for my small fingers (between #0 to #1 metolius), cranking straight up that crack seemed hard for the grade. A hold out left may help, bouldery.|

Hard for 10d to lead. I climb up, place some purple/blue/yellow mastercams as high as I can, downclimb back to the rest, and then just punch it. Stopping to place gear in the roof makes this a 5.11 for sure. I use the hold out left for sure.
If you want to setup as a TR, its best to extend the anchor way out so that you can get the biners over the sharp edge of the lip. Two double shoulder slings and a cordelette will give you the options you need. 60m rope is plenty for this climb.
Many many people only climb up to the first anchor right below the roof, which goes at 5.9.

|And i thought i was 'cheating' by using the hold out left! I tried and tried to work it straight through the roof crack, thin, hard, NOT 10.d! Finally got it out left...? But really really fun!|
