Start up the standard crumble for a short bit, clip two bolts, grab a loose jug that may or may not remain by the time you read this (will be a harder move!), and transition to the undercling traverse that takes you through the roof move(wicked fun!). Pull through a few more loose blocks up to great crack and face climbing above. Very aesthetic line, would clean up with more traffic.


This route is on the right side of the crag, obvious to find by the steep start through a traversing roof undercling. Look for a two bolt start.


A couple bolts low, and one high at the crux.
Bring a single set from .3 Camalots to a #3, maybe double up on the tips to finger size. I think I placed a nut or two also.
