Who knows for sure, but I think the left leaning crack starting from the first bolt is actually Sugar Pops 5.10c (TR) and Pop Rocks takes the crack up and right from the first bolt. Sugar Pops would be a bold lead indeed.

You're right John, the Sugar Pops variation 5.10c (TR) takes the diagonal thin crack and face from the first bolt of Pop Rocks up and left, connecting at the last (2nd) bolt of Pop Rocks, below the roof. I toproped it in 2002, to be a safe lead it would need 3 additional bolts.

In this photo, Pop Rocks starts with the vertical crack, then where the crack forks (bolt) it goes up and slightly right for about 40 feet to a thin horizontal, then traverses left to a bolt, then up over the roof crack (5.10c).

Fair enough gents I'll remove my remarks. It's been 20 years since I climbed that sucker, and can only really remember going over the roof.
