Really enjoyed this one - easy to set a toprope up on if you're not confident in the grade (we did - it was 12AM and none of us were exactly experts with finger cracks). It was a constant fight for the first 30-40 feet. Best piece of advice I got was use your entire body as much as possible - I smeared my ass all over that goddamned wall and it helped immensely.
Fell once pulling the second roof - you can get a shitty rest after the first but it's cramped and forced. Beta on the second was a bit tricky to figure out at night, but still a lot of fun. Highly recommended if you're into/want to be into cracks.

|Contrary to the description I found the initial, steep finger crack, dihedral to be the crux. 25ft or so without a good rest, placing pro is strenuous here.|

|this climb is seriously incredible considering it's a short one. The move after the roof is ridiculous IMO and takes away from the charm.|
