Another fun roof move, definitely harder than Space Bucket. After the second bolt, head up to the right of the 'nose' of the roof. Fewer bolts than Space Bucket, a letter grade (or 2) harder, make for an exciting ride. There is a slot for a small cam under the roof.


From the top of Barney Rubble, head straight up through 2 bolts, over the right side of the roof to the anchor. Lower off to top of Barney Rubble.


3 bolts, small (.3-.5) cam, bolted anchor.

I thought this was a couple of letter grades harder than Space Buckets, but also funner. More exposed. If you place the cam, extend it! Rope drag. As with Space Bucket, link it with a 70 and a couple of alpines on Barney and a great long pitch.
