John Hayes fighting to figure out the crux before ...

Description 

Tricky crux section with sustained climbing for a bit after then a cool roof move.

Location 

Second to last route on the right side of the Knight. Starts right of a crack/flake system that ends with a bolt about 15 feet off of the ground This is a route called Knight to Pawn Four. This climb starts at a shallow right facing corner.

Protection 

Bolts, Anchors that are in a bad but still usable location.

Pulling the roof is great fun and surprisingly moderate. Fun route.
