This route climbs the broken crack system through the obvious bulge. Rosebush starts out really melow at around 5.6 and climbs broken terrain, past a fixed nut. Work your way under the bulge, place a couple cams and pull bulge/roof while placing a cam during or just before crux. After this, the climb mellows significantly and climbs another 30 feet to anchors on the right.
Walk up the approach trail to practice rock. When the trail splits, take a couple paces to the right and you will be standing under the route.
Cams .4-3 camalot.

There are no bolts on this route, save the anchor.

I highly recommend this route. Place some good gear at the bottom of the roof and just pull it until easy again. Quick and short crux.
