Left crack is very good. First 30' to roof is pretty stupid. You may be able to get a blue ball nut or two before the piton that moves when weighted. A #5 and #4 gets you passed the roof. It's a lot of 2's until the top. Another 5 might be good. Really surprising how great the route is. Oct 29, 2015
