Description 

Find this route to the right of "Connections" on the right side of the crag. Directly beneath the prow of the large V-shaped roof is a narrow, right-facing, low-angle corner leading to a thin arch. Rhythm-scratching up the steep face above the arch leads directly to the roof. Follow the arch left to Connections and belay there.

notes:

a) A longer rope than I had may allow a belay higher, at the normal belay on "Connections", however if you don't make it you'll have to belay from a single old bolt.

b) This route was done on-sight, as was the second ascent by Strappo. It has been repeated, up to the roof, by each of us in our attempts to do a different finish up and right. This finish (given the working title "Hip-Hop") has never been finished, mainly due to my orthopedic history. I consider it an "open project" so long as it is done ground-up and any bolts placed on the lead.

c) Any bolts added to this route will be removed without discussion.
