    Start on the left side of the lower tier. Climb the black overhanging flare making hard moves past the first bolt. Clip the second bolt then continue straight up on good hold passing two more bolts getting to the anchor.


    Four bolts and a two-bolt anchor.

    5.11b if you don't use the block behind you (like a sit-down start from the low undercling). Some think harder still.
    If you start on the block it might be 11- though, or perhaps even less if you walk up it to start far to the left. Regardless, interesting opening moves lead to more mellow climbing once your feet are above the roof.

    Wins the award for worst route in Boulder Canyon, maybe even in Colorado.
