The top of the roof is the crux.

Description 

Spiderman is a rarely climbed, and very steep, route on the large roof that overhangs the road. Start under the largest part of the roof (towards the right end) on a small fingertip undercling, move straight up through the tiers (crux), and finish by pulling straight through the small triangular nose to reach jugs and top.

The most natural line through this overhang links Little Feat and Spiderman, and is probably 5.11a/b. For this variation, follow Little Feat to just below the main roof, make an obvious hand traverse right, then pull the small nose as for Spiderman.
