The roof

Description 

Pull the low roof on positive holds and then trend up the slightly slabby face via technical movement to a rest at two-thirds height. Step left to a corner and rail below the roof. Monkey out the roof and trend up the slightly overhanging headwall to a bolted anchor. Classic!

Location 

After passing the Long Wall, the best of the next group of climbs (the Lichen Wall) is Satisfaction Guaranteed, an obvious face climb leading up to a large roof.

Protection 

8 bolts to bolted anchor.

One of the best routes at the New, imo. Little bit of everything. Don't let anyone scare you - the opening "slab" isn't really that bad, and is barely slab at that. Make sure you've got a good belay when pulling the roof, clipping the next bolt can be a bit tricky. Be ready for a ride.
