Description 

From a boulder below the Hot Tuna roof jump to a big hold. Climb up and over the second overlap to the top

Protection 

TR only, (2) SS Wave Bolts added for protection at the top of Hot Tuna Buttress. Flying fish has had no protection besides some hangerless rusty bolts. It can now be top roped safely. You can still backup your anchor with a very long piece of webbing (probably over 50 feet needed)

Boulder to jump from is located on the left side of the roof, once over the roof one can traverse right, then head up.
