Climb the easy slab and make the move into the roof holds, then enjoy the jugfest on the headwall. Good fun.
Just to the right of Lavender Eye.

This is a little easier if you cheat out right low on the route, maybe around the 2nd bolt. It just seemed a little out of the way to still be on the route.

This route is actually to left of lavender eye, not the right as the description states.

Totally reachy. At 6ft I was at full extension on the good holds before the roof. Anyone shorter would have to use a nasty two finger sloping crimp to get up to the underclings under the roof.

I guess if your shorter than 6 ft. it would seem harder than a 10? Pretty good problem solving eh? The first time I climbed it I took a fall 3 times. The 3rd time I almost hit the back of my head. Felt really good when I finally clipped the bolt after the roof!

As a 5' 6" climber, I had NO FUN in the crux move and couldn't pull it on my last visit, I know exactly what you mean. :-)
I found the 2nd bolt placement rather odd, too, I wonder if the rock was not good further right?
