Just right of B3 is this pumpy climb. Wile the moves are not hard, a lot of them are a struggle and some can be brute-force. I believe cooler weather may be better for this climb, as it likely got its name from it's tendency to create holes- better in some crappy climbing clothes than in the climber!
Climb up a big block (5.easy) and then place pro and head up the corner. No truly wide gear is needed, but a #4 camalot is useful for sure. Continue to the roof up top and pull the crux, a powerful move, and pop up over the top. Belay from some cord on trees back from the edge.
On the right side of Long Wall. Walk past the big offwidth (Yuk) and go around a corner and past a group of several very tall sport routes. Just past these is a huge roof almost against a large left-facing corner. The corner to the roof is Perforator, the "crack" left of that is B3.
A standard rack with cams to 4" and some longer slings.

Gear: hands to fists. A # 4 will protect the run to the roof. Roof takes .75/.5 C4's. Really wide above but can get a few pieces right after the roof (offset blue/yellow works really well as does a purple C4).
Has a bolted anchor at the top. A single 60 will get you down to the top of the block but not the ground.
