[Hide Comment] Short but sweet! Extending the last draw and skipping the second to last bolt worked best for me. I found the second to last clip awkward to get to. Jul 10, 2017

[Hide Comment] Awesome movement! Of the two side-by-side bolts just before the lip of the roof, clip the Fixe bolt on the climbers right. The old Metolius bolt on the left is a spinner and apparently was not able to be removed. Oct 23, 2017

[Hide Comment] Fun juggy v3 roof moves to dynamic bump just beyond the lip. Not a 13 imo but a super fun and dynamic route none the less. May 1, 2019
