Though the roof is a little intimidating, the crux is probably on the lower face. Layback the roof flake to a welcome jug. Missing the third clip would be a safe but "uncomfortable" fall. After the roof, easy run-out climbing leads to a nice two bolt anchor.


Just left of New Generation. Climbs past a two bolt face to the obvious roof with a large left facing flake.

I would say that the crux is pulling over the bulge above the roof.
