This route tackles the big roof. Scramble to the base, a short face leads to the roof. Pull the roof using the seam/crack. 5.9 territory the rest of the way. If you belay from the ground (recommended), a 60 metre rope barely gets you down!
10 bolts? 1/2" x 6" bolts, bomber home made hangers (you won't be able to tell), chain anchors.

What a varied route! Steep slab climbing, slopers, crimps and a strenuous roof - all in 90 feet!
The scramble to the first bolt is fourth class, but beware of loose rock - my rope dislodged a pretty hefty place from the junk. This route is well bolted, pumpy and interesting all the way to the chains.

I'll actually give this one 5.12a as a flash grade. The crux is pretty hard and not obvious. I ended up doing some pretty funky moves to get through it, not to mention power and reach. Check out the photo of the crux set-up.
Fun route. If you avoid going way left up top, then the route is NOT over after the roof.
A 60M rope just gets you to the ground.

Reachy?????? I'm 5'6" It can't be reachy! I tried to place the bolts so you would go right. If you can pull the ruff you don't want it to end there!

Spoiler alert sort of-
Tape the second joint (DIP) of your right index finger and it'll be more fun.
