Description 

The continuation of Railing. Unfortunately there is some suspect rock (in fact I ripped off a huge hold) at both of the cruxes which detracts from the otherwise very cool climbing.

From Railing's anchor, head up an arete feature past two bolts to a short-lived runout up under the first roof. Clip the bolt at the lip off of a large, hollow hold (if this were to rip off before clipping you'd be screwed, but some small wires could alleviate this otherwise DFU section). Pull the technical crux of the route above. Up higher is a second roof which presents the physical crux of the climb, even with the kneebars.


Protection 

All in all, 5 bolts and an anchor plus the stuff on Railing. The PG-13 designation could be disregarded with a couple small wires.
