Description 

Climb up the steep roof heading into a powerful boulder problem before climbing into easier terrain. While the moves are excellent, this route represents a "corruption" of my personal ethics. While working the route, a key crimp broke off, and after much deliberation I decided to glued it back on.

The results of this action is a wonderfully steep and gymnastic route with a true boulderer's crux, climbing out a nearly horizontal roof... in North Table!

I'm sure one day, years from now, the crimp will break off again, and this will allow nature's route to be just that again. Until then, I hope people can reserve there harsh "MP" judgment and enjoy the climb for what it is, a learning experience. Not that it matters now, but if I could do it again, I would have not repaired the hold. You live and you learn I guess.

Location 

Start below the roof at the main prow, using the same start as for [[108515547], then cut left.

Protection 

7 bolts and 2 anchors.
