DescriptionThis is an exciting and exposed roof traverse with a fun roof pull on hero holds. Begin in the V-notch gully or just to the right. Continue up the arete until you are in a corner capped by a small roof, and under the roof is a thin crack. You should be above the large roof, but crunched in the corner below the small roof to start the traverse. Traverse right under the small roof following the major footholds and often hidden hands (crux). It is easy to get suckered into a bad spot if you aren't following the feet.
Continue traversing and placing small gear until the thin crack turns into a jug hand about 10' above the stance. To start the roof pull you should be in a ok stance at a small right facing corner/groove. Plug gear here and fire straight up through the jug hands. Make a few more moves up horizontals trending right slightly. Pull over the top and drop into a hole for a gear belay.
The real crux may be route and hold finding.
