Description

Tackling the large roof to the left of Bust a Move, this line is shorter than many of the other hard routes here but it still packs a serious punch. Surprisingly, the roof itself is not the crux. A technical beginning leads through easier climbing up to the roof. Jug haul out the roof until the angle changes, then forge up the difficult boulder problem above. 10-12 moves comprise the technical crux, but the difficulties continue via a battle with some off-balance 5.12 climbing. Finish with some exciting and slightly runout 5.10/11.

Location

You'll find this route just to the left of Bust A Move/Bust A Rhythm. It begins on the same vertical face and tackles the imposing roof to the left of the corner system. I'm pretty sure a 60m rope reaches the ground.

Protection

Bolts. I believe 12-14 including the anchors but I could be wrong.
