while there are numerous ways to pull the roof at the second bolt, most, if not all, are awkward. the rest of the climb consists of largely unmemorable moves up the crack to a traverse under the small roof just right and below the shared anchor with Bass Ackwards. it's really only worth doing if the rest of the moderates at the Tattoo wall are already occupied.

Fun route, my first 5.9 lead. Pulling the roof was the fun part then the climbing was mediocre to the second roof. Last few moves were a little heady but fun. If other routes are taken up its totally worth taking a run.
