Mike pulls the roof on a cold December day.
Start left hand on the heavily chalked hold to the right of the asshole and right hand out on the edge of the roof, jump up to get the right foot on. Slap out on slopers, place the left foot and heel hook to the edge of the roof. The crux is pulling up onto the face. Top out and descend as for "Red"
opposite side from red, as you approach the large boulder from the trail it will be on the left corner, starting on the waco (the asshole) and the arete, under a 6 foot roof.

I have a question regarding the start to this climb. Does it start both hands under the lip in the jug or left in the jug and right hand on the lip?
The description here and the guidebooks are conflicting...

I'd say whatever you prefer. It makes no difference - both starts are valid in my opinion.

I'd say the same thing. Most people start with a hand on the jug and another on the lip instead of starting matched. Adding the extra move doesn't add to the difficulty.
