Description 

Start on the obvious slab below the roof which is about 10a. Then, go to the short and steep dihedral. The crux is reaching out of the dihedral to a hold that looks like a tusked shaped turd then go for a sloping rail and traverse to the right to the roof and hang on for dear life to the anchors.

Location 

This is the route on the slab between Brown Bunny and Exit Only that goes up the dihedral and goes right to the roof. The tusk did not drop!

Protection 

9 bolts to a classic DH sport anchor!

Fun! A deadpoint at the 5th bolt for the shorter climbers (I'm 5'7" with 0 ape index) to get your heart pumping, a bouldery crux pulling out to the arete, then turn the final overhang on jugs to the anchor (if you can find them). What's not to like?
