Description 

This is just a cool little climb which goes through the obvious weakness in the roof on the slabs left of the lichen covered buttresses left of Annie get your guns in Dillard Canyon.
I only gave this climb one star because you have to walk a long ways past other better climbs to get to it.
Pretty much climb 5.7 slab to 5 foot roof with good gear, pull it and continue up 5.6 slab to anchor 190 feet up.


Location 

When you are level with groover, bushwhack west until you see a giant lichen-covered buttress. the clean slabs on which this climb is located are behind this buttress. When you get to the slabs, locate the roof. pick a line on the slabs up to the roof and pull the roof 15 feet right of the lowest point of the roof where there is a flake going partway out it


Protection 

No protection bolts, two bolt ring anchor on top. Bring pro up to #2 or 3 camalot for roof and small TCUs for initial slab (you might find a placement). Bring lots of long slings. Initial slab to roof is 5.7R/X.
