BETA PHOTO: X It and Big O Flyer
Start in a shallow crack on a slab leading to a ledge. Above the ledge, stay outside on the face rather than grovelling up a gully on the right. This puts you in a short, left-facing corner topped by a roof with a crack/seam splitting the headwall above. A fun move turns the roof but ends much too soon on a big ledge. One more clip on the wall above brings you to the anchors (shared with "Startled", which comes in from the right).
Six bolts to a two bolt anchor with rings.
Help! What route is this climber on? I cannot fi...
Brian starting up the crux, ~5.9.
On the ledge near the top of X It.

Really fun, kinda powerful and better than it feels move through the roof, worth your time for sure.

The move through the roof is a lot of fun! You definitely have to commit to it, but it is well worth it.

You know, looking at the beta pic, there's not that bolt under the overhang to this climb. OR, could be a mixed-pro climb being in the "Trad Lands".

Buff's right, no bolt under the roof. It's an easy reach to the bolt over the roof. Definitely not 10a, as listed in the new book. [Where they list it as Route 168, in the Overhang Area (Second Crag) section.]

Super fun roof, much easier than it looks and easier than the 10a listed in the new book for sure.
