This is the roof extension to "Family Unit" or "Family Jewels". The difficulty is about the same either way. From the anchors, cop a good rest, then make a few steep moves on good holds to the next clip. Make a huge move to a good but sharp undercling, and battle over the bulge. Huge jugs take you to the anchors. The moves are fun, probably around V5/V6, but there are some sharp, unpleasant holds. The guidebook recommends a right kneebar pad, but I didn't see that.


Start as for Family Unit/Family Jewels, and continue past.


3 more bolts to anchors. The second is generally skipped.
