Climbed on Veterans Day 2018, the Centenary of World War I. Only thing keeping this line from 4 stars is a top-out.

Synopsis: 25+ feet through two distinct roofs. Hand/heel/toe magic, crimps, monster power, and precision all required. A long entry sequence will soak your arms in lactic acid just in time for a big shutdown move. A stacked closing sequence and wild finish might break your heart and will eat your skin... but you'll keep going back anyway.

General beta: Start deep in the cave of the Great American Roof and follow the obvious shelf-arete feature half the length of the cave. There are some good holds underneath in the belly you can use. Work your way to the eventual vertical band marking the end of the first roof. Fire way up and left to a flake in the second roof. Tick-tack across some crimps and a mailslot to set yourself up for a big move out to the roof's lip. Negotiate a gymnastic ending to finish in a pocket feature just above the lip (match and hop down, please do not continue up and damage the lichen face ahead until further notice).
