Traverse as far left as you can on good ledges. Gunk's mantel up into the obvious corner and climb straight up to roof.
Use crack below roof and sketchy feet along with all your ninja skills to traverse right and pull up over the roof at obvious jug.
Continue to climb wedge face to finish.
Rap station will bring you down to the starting Rap ledge and nearly into one of the pine trees below with a hanging rappel.
Rope drag will be an issue. My suggestion is when you place pro into roof on obvious crack remove the last piece you might have placed just below you if you can.
The fall is clean for the most part but half-way under the roof till you pull the roof has ledge decking potential.
This is also the rap station you will use to lower back to the ground later.
