This route is a continuation of Never Believe and punches through the big roof above the anchors. It was drilled as a bolt ladder, and as such is plenty easy to dog up. You'll only clip about half of these bolts on the redpoint -- make sure it's the good ones, as some of these bolts are fairly crooked and manky. Sorry.

Climb Never Believe to the anchors. Rest at a stance here, clinging to large tufas and getting that pesky lactic acid out of your forearms. A V8-type boulder problem leads out and past the lip of the roof to a short but fairly sustained section of climbing over a finishing bulge. The pocket in the roof is sometimes wet.

This isn't the best route by any stretch of the imagination, but sporadic traffic over the last few years has helped it clean up a bit.
