Reversal Roof climbs more like a boulder problem than a route. Three kneebars and a couple deadpoints will get you to the lip and over the large roof. Depending on your beta and how the climb "fits" you it may seem easier (or harder) than V7 (13a). Some crumbly rock at the start so pre-clipping is recommended for safety. Start slightly right of the bolts and work through the overhangs, pulling through the roof at the second bolt.
The left side of the large roof system just down the trail from Free Willie.
3 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor; lower off or linkup with "Nice To Be Here" (11a/b) on the headwall above for a 75 foot route.

V7 sounds about right. I climbed it completely to the right of the bolts. No kneebars, but some great toe hook/ heel hook, followed by a wicked mantel.
