Easily one of the best lines on the wall.

Technical side-pulls and glassy feet lead to a good rest. The first crux is demanding, but there is a good stance after this (most cryptic) part of the climb. Getting into the roof can be tricky too, especially if you are pumped, so save some gas for the last 20 ft. Linking this straight into MFR provides the most full value (70m) rope stretcher I've found around PDX.

All old bolts replaced as of 4/5/15, thanks to ASCA and volunteers. Steel anchor biners added.
