I don't know why I ever even bothered to tie in for this route, but don't make the same mistake. This may well be the worst route at the City. Awkward moves up chossy rock on the arete lead to a desperate reach for the crack of Circus Roof. A better variation is to do any other route in the area besides this one.


The arete and face out right of the Circus Roof, joins Circus after the roof.


2 bolts to a hand crack (#1-3 camalots will get you to the anchor)

If it isn't 'that bad' it is at least close. Actual difficulty depends on what sheds off on you and what, to your surprise, holds. Maybe easier for climbers below 22 pounds.
