Nathan, about to pull up and over the 2nd roof.

Description 

Start below the obvious 1st roof and head up the fun & easy dihedral. When you hit the roof, traverse left and pull up and over. Traverse back to the right under the 2nd roof towards the lone bolt. Move up & over the roof to find the Snake Face anchors. Negotiating the roofs will obviously be the cruxes.

Location 

Start directly below the obvious roof. Shares anchors with Snake Face (above the 2nd roof).

Protection 

Gear to 2.5" Does have 1 bolt near the 2nd roof crux. Can also be TR'd after climbing Snake Face (5.9), as they share the same anchors.

Small TCU's come in handy on this climb. Clipping most of the gear with runners will keep the rope drag manageable.
