Comments: We missed the tape, webbing or whatever at end of p1. We traversed right at the tree on p2 but may have gone a move or two high as this is easier than 5.7. We followed p3 according to Williams (the description above is confusing), fun little roof. All in all, a fun route and good (aka easier I thought) for an aspiring 5.5/5.6 leader.

Comments: I concur with the comments about protecting the lower traverse.
All in all, a really nice pitch I thought. The crux is the lower part. After pulling the initial moves I couldn't find decent pro before traversing right so just went for it.
Holds were good though.
