A great mix of styles, well protected. If you plan to TR put a longer draw in at the roof reduce drag.

The route slants to the right. So the anchor is bit right of the start of the route. Be careful of swing if top-roping.

Rope drag adds up after you make it past the roof. Start with a little chimney move and climb up to a ledge (bolt will be slightly below you) to make it a little easier. Fun and stays in the shade most of the day.
