Description

Two interesting pitches on variable rock, generally good but with a few shabby sections on Pitch 1. Don't be deterred, it's a very worthy route and careful climbing will avoid trouble with the suspicious stuff.
Stemming through the cruxy start of the second pitch will make it a little less strenuous. The next two roofs ease off, but it's not a gimme.

Location

The route is located left of Boxcar Arete and Tolle Rt., all three on the smaller buttress west of the main wall. It ascends a crack system immediately right of the Monkeyflower bolts, skirting leftwards under a series of three major roofs. Park the belay ending the first pitch under the third big roof. Oddly, the name actually is derived from the upcoming series of three roofs on the second pitch. A photo with Monkeyflower gives a good view of pitch 2.
Rap with 2 60m ropes from the bolted anchor at the ledge system ending the route.

Protection

Stoppers and cams through a #4. Pro is good. There is a bolted station at the top. There is one fixed pin at the top of the first pitch.
