Begin with a committing side pull to reach the first good ledge and the first bolt. Stick clip the 1st bolt if you can. Once on the ledge step right to climb the ramp back left towards the corner. Move up to the roof and avoid the hollow, horizontal flake at the beginning of the roof as you pull on some less than decent jugs to get over the roof and back on vertical terrain with less than positive finishing holds.

There is a brittle horizontal flake/fin of rock near the start of the roof that you should avoid pulling on. There are plenty of solid ledges so it is easy to skip this once you identify it. If it breaks off it will definitely be bad news for your belayer.


Route starts on the obvious ledge to the right of Tale of 2 Billboards. It shares a start with a variation route which traverses right at the roof.


5 bolts with 1 permadraw and a 2 bolt anchor
