Description 

The moderate climbing up the groove barely prepares you for the crux to come. A good rest at the ledge before the roof allows you to scope out the crux - which may involve a considerable dyno for a good hold thence the top. Fun.

Location 

Leftmost route on the right formation

Protection 

5 bolts, chain anchor

Really just a one-move crux but is totally worth doing!! The "jug" you throw from doesn't feel as good as you'd like, but just go for it you'll be fine.

Definitely not 10d.. feels like 10b max.. will be harder for shorter people and will require the dyno to a hero hold. Can be done static if you have reach and are crafty.
