Roof Wall, second pitch variation (10b s+): Climb the V-slot (9) to a stance in the corner. Climb a finger and hand crack on the right wall up to the roof (8). Place pro in the corner (hexes or 2"-3" cams), and traverse right under the roof to the arete (8).

Place a ball nut or small wired nut, climb up 10 feet, and place a #2 Camalot in a shallow slot. Climb the face another 30' on small edges, angling up and left to a brown ramp (10b s+). Move left to the left-facing corner and belay.

After the #2 Camalot, there is sustained 5.9-5.10 face climbing with no more protection for 30'-35' until you reach the belay. The #2 Camalot is in a cracked block, and may not hold a long fall.
