Fun roof climbing on pretty good rock. A blocky 5.11 start leads to a no hands rest at the third bolt. From here 12- roof climbing leads to a powerful then technical V5/V6 crux. I backcleaned the last bolt (4th) before the chain draws to help with rope drag, and waited until I was above the 8th bolt and through the crux to clip it.

Thanks for the hard work put into this area.
