Fun stuff to the roof, hard pull over roof then a bit more business till it eases up and joins Candy Man.


Takes the obvious corner through the obvious roof just left of Cat On a Hot Thin Roof.
Joins Candy Man about half way up.

This will be a bit harder if you are shorter than 5'10". I am 5'6" with the same ape index and I had to work out an entirely different way through the crux. Funny thing is that Jimbo and I both worked on this before and decided we didn't want to do it because it was hard (I couldn't even do it)and rough on the tips. Now that I have a sequence that will work I look forward to getting on it for the redpoint.
