The name is the informal one we gave it after climbing it in 2006. (On the lead, above the roof, I stepped on a microwave-sized block and felt it move under my foot. I managed to hold it in place long enough for my partner to get WAY out of the way, and then I let it drop. It exploded on slab and sent pieces all the way to the base of the cliff.) It was very mossy/lichen-y at the time, but it's too obvious a line to have not been climbed before. If you know of the original FA names/dates, please let me know and I'll add them.
Climb the corner (wide-style) or the face just to its left until you are below the big roof with the crack. Ape out on big holds and good gear, then make a few hard cranks to get established above. Follow the crack system up and through another, easier overlap (perhaps loose) and belay on the low-angle, mossy slab above.
