DescriptionUnder-cling up left until you can reach up right over the roof.
There are two cruxes. The first one is the embarrassment of flailing and swinging into innocent passers-by. The second is knowing how to stop the endless line of not-so-innocent passers-by who ask for a try.
Life is short, so throw as many heel hooks as you can.
LocationThis is the giant overhang just past the Uberfall, and right before the Suzie A block. It starts right behind the big rescue equipment box.
ProtectionThis route is most commonly top-roped. As the name suggests, it can be bouldered. Taller stuff has been, but I wouldn't want to fall off near the top.
For leading, there is a fixed pin right before the lip of the roof, and other gear is available (can be strenuous to place).
It is important to consider the effects of either a fall or the swing from TR into passing foot traffic.
