Description 

First, admire the communal work of man and mother nature. Next, get psyched. Work up the man cut perfect finger flake from the ground to a chiseled ledge between the head wall and overhanging boulder. Traverse left to the roof boulder's crack using natural jibs or the drilled holes for feet. Work into the crack with a heel hook on the ledge. Power up, through, and over the crack's thin holds and jams for a high ball top out on questionable blocks. Sustained line with a broad mix of technique and gumption.

Location 

Right and down from the porch, you'll reach a ledge you can down climb into the little corner that this beaut resides in. It's a pretty noticeable feature.

Protection 

Def want a crash pad and spotter to move it and watch you. Could be better but landing is about as flat and solid as you could hope for with a roof route like this. Could be led with gear, maybe top-roped if you wanted to jimmy rig something up.
