|South Central Rocks
Find this problem by heading east slightly from the main South Central area. This is a long roof traverse (about 20 feet or so) that is very low to the ground. If you fall, you just land in the dirt a foot below. This problem can be done from left to right, but is better right to left. Start at a jug and throw your feet to the right on a giant shelf. From here, monkey your way left until the final hold at the end of the boulder. Fun and necessary heel hooking, and a cool bicep power move at the halfway point.This became much harder when a large foothold shelf broke off years ago.

There are many ways to start this problem, the most challenging is to sit underneath the right hand crimp to the right of the jugs and throw a foot on to the shelf and an edge underneath the shelf. Move the left hand up and to the left ot the jugs Peter referred to and move through the remainder of the problem to the left.
It is definitely a right to left problem with the crux being shown in Peter's photo. The top out on the far left is excellent, too. It is good to have two pads, and a spotter is handy for the top-out. I would agree with V5.

The F.A. of this route was done in the later 1970's by Dave Larsen.
We used to refer to the sit start under the roof moving into the finger crack above as Buckboard Laredo's Roof.
