I tried this a while back and ran into a lot of sketchy loose rock between the start and the area below the big roof one presumably traverses left under. I ended up moving right to the Super Direct crack and setting a belay to get away and finished on that route.
I wasn't completely sold on the pro at the start and traversed in via an easy 5.6ish unprotected path from the left. Out of curiosity, how did this start roof move compare to Super Direct?

|The move is about the same difficulty as Super Direct but I agree the pro doesn't inspire the same confidence as that on Super Direct.|
