This route starts just left of Overseer and goes up and left at the roof. After the roof you go straight up the crack to the top to set up an anchor.You can protect the crux at the roof by sticking a #4 way up in the crack. We removed the cam after pulling the crux to reduce rope drag.The pro is good on this climb, but everything sounds hollow. Nothing broke for us and I am a 200lb climber, so it is probably pretty solid.I gave it a star because I thought the crux was fun, bouldery and committing.Rap off right at the same rap anchors you use for White Lightning.
