Description 

Starting off a large boulder under a roof, work your way above the roof crack to where it's more vertical. Arm bar, chicken wing, fist jam your way up. There are rap anchors on a ledge off to the climbers left, or you can continue climbing to the top and anchor off some trees. Finish is easier but still holds some interest.

Location 

Above the huge boulder that is mostly covered by a roof.

Protection 

You can plug a #3 C4 into the roof crack right off the boulder to protect the very beginning. After that, #2(2),#3,#3.5,#4(2). Webbing or cord for building an anchor off trees at the top.
