Description 

Cruise up the right side of the obvious slab to a high spacey first clip off of a secure undercling, then pull the roof on large pockets and trend left to surmount the exit moves. The crux is pulling the roof without using the crack to the right, and staying on the face. It shases its last bolt, and anchors with Overloord. A fun and lively warm up. It gets morning shade and afternoon sun.

Location 

1st route to the right of Overloord.

Protection 

4 bolts to a two bolt chained anchor.

Fun climb! Definitely more challenging if you don't use the crack on the right, hence the 10a/b suggestion.

This was climbed on gear (maybe by Roybal?) in the 70's and named "Foops" after the famous Gunks roof route.

Lead this route and found it to be a very fun route! The first bolt was a little tricky for me as I am a little shorter (5'8") but getting over the overhang was not as bad as I thought it would be. I found the crux to be more in the face of the climb as the feet and hands easily blend into the face and are difficult to find unless directly over them.
