Description 

A bit of loose rock and a contrived finish detract from the fun climbing and great position. Begin with "the approach pitch" by climbing a long stretch of 5.5 past a single bolt. An optional piece of gear would eliminate the run out. Clip the anchor and head straight up into the roof above (notice the climb's namesake tucked under the roof). A difficult clip off some good pockets leads out to the arete and a huge flake/rest. One can stand on this flake (the natural line seems to go straight up from here) and clip the last bolt before downclimbing and continuing out the arete to a horn. There is one more difficult move getting established on this horn before the anchors.
