Pulling out the roof boulder problem.

Description 

This line packs a lot of fun climbing into a short distance. It begins with powerful laybacks and underclings into a reaches and throws between good holds on the steep bulge. I can almost guarantee you'll be sans contact between your feet and the rock at least one point during the roof. The bouldering quickly ceases and you'll find yourself suddenly in the midst of a nice crimpy technical puzzle. The climbing is three stars on this route, but I simply prefer longer routes. Boulder-ers would probably give this 3 stars.

Location 

Obvious seam to roof a dozen or so feet left of Bushdoctor/Bloodline.

Protection 

5 bolts to chains. 1st bolt off to the right is a great directional to keep you from getting flossed. Stick clipping comes recommended.
