Description 

"Greed...is good"

Stick clip the first bolt shared with Looters then campus the crazy roof start. Boulder through the technical crux around the third bolt.

Crawl into a hole about midpoint and recover, then pump out the roof...the top is technical and somewhat cryptic, but not hard if you nail the sequences.

Clip the anchors, give a "Braaawwk" yell and lower.

Location 

This is the second route left on the left side of the Crime Buttress.

Shares the first bolt with Looters (12b).

Protection 

9-10 draws, fixed anchors.

Starting holds are on a roof with black rock. Start by stepping onto the cairn. Hook your right heel and make the powerful moves up to the next two holds. Trend slightly left for a few moves after the initial start moves and then head straight up to the cave, where you can get a good rest. Pull the roof onto the face for some excellent balancy/crimpy moves. Great route and great rests. Don't forget to enjoy the view once you reach the top.
