Ben LaCour just above the first roof.

Description 

Start about 10 feet right of Popeye's, beneath a roof about 12 feet off the ground. Work your way up finger cracks and crimps to the roof, then work right using underclings and finger cracks. Crux move is getting past the first roof to jugs just above. Don't relax yet, there's a second roof halfway up, but it's easier than the first. Pull through the roof on the middle to left side and make your way up ledges to the top.

Location 

Bottom of route is 10-15 feet right of Popeye's. Top of route is 20 feet right of Crown of Thorns.

Protection 

Toprope anchor on the big block to climber's right of the large ledge 10' below the top, using a very long static line. You can use this same anchor for all routes from Popeye's to Olive Oyl. Be sure your master point hangs over the lip to avoid abrasion and rope drag. Rappel down so you can redirect the rope around the appropriate blocks and notches.
