Description 

This is located near the center of the crag, right of "Pierced Lip Lock". Start off the top of a huge boulder that sits against the wall, forming a ledge. Climb up a slab angling right to a small roof & 3rd bolt. The crux is getting over this roof. Continue over a series of tiered roofs (.12a) to finally pull onto a steep slab. Moderate climbing leads to the anchor.

Protection 

9 bolts / 2 Fixe rings.

A little friable at the start but better as you get higher.
Tricky crux at 3rd bolt and not over till you reach the slab.
