Watch the rope drag at the bottom. Perhaps the best way is to protect under roof and then back clean...

Amazingly good pro for how tenuous it looks/feels.

Yeah, just keep your eyes open for the good pieces, because there are lots of opportunites to put in marginal ones & pump out!

A great trick someone showed me: place a bomber medium (#6 or 7, can't quite remember) Stopper right at the lip of the roof to keep your rope out of the crack.

One of the great single pitch 5.10's, like the best of the Gunks routes in this grade, packing a LOT of varied climbing into one sustained half-rope length of pure rock climbing ecstasy.

One more rope drag tip! You can place a .5 size piece with a runner in the flake to the left of the roof. This keeps your rope well away from the crack at the lip.

Do as Monty does: put a piece in the flake to the left above the lip to keep your rope out of the crack, or you could find yourself in a serious situation if you fall off the crux and the rope cinches in!
