Description Suggest change

Follow the directions as per Final Exam. Approach the upper roof, 70 feet off of the ground, via Final Exam, Bailey's Overhang, or Coffin Crack.

To climb Pass Fail Option from Final Exam, do not belay - just continue upward. If approached from Bailey's Overhang or Coffin Crack, you will want to set a belay at the center of the roof and bring your partner up, to avoid drag. Jam through the middle of the roof on awkward-sized jams, get horizontal, and go for it before the pump completely saps you.

Once above the roof, continue upward on easy ground to reach a ledge up and left of the center of the roof and belay.

From there, a set of raps or downclimbing to the raps above Polyester Leisure Suit will get you back to the ground.

Protection Suggest change

A standard rack of cams from 1.5" to 3" + gear as required for an approach pitch. Might be easier to lead than clean due to gear positions.
