Zydygo!

Description 

The obviousy steep flake feature on the right side of the Screamweaver cliff.
p.1- Sramble up to a point where you can undercling the bottom of the big flake. Lieback/jam your way through the steep section. Move slightly right, pull the roof, and continue up somewhat sustained, steeper terrain to a large tree at the top. 90', 5.10c.

Location 

Look for the obvious flake near the right end of the Screamweaver buttress. 30m rap to the ground, or it looks like you can walk off as well.

Protection 

Take a wide range of gear, from yellow TCU-#3 camalot. Tree anchor w/ a rap setup at the top.

Pulling the roof after the crux is definitely the most exciting part of the route.
