From Gooseberry Gully, walk north. Continue past The Dead Zone and into The Big Section. You will come to a prominent wall with a very large maple tree shading it. There will be a yellow painted '18b.' At this marker, which is just a meter north of the maple tree, is a blocky face. This face continues up to a blocky, left facing corner. Ascend the face up to the left facing corner. Continue up the left facing corner to the improbable looking roof. Route recommended for the solid 5.9 leader, as this route has a lot of questionable quality blocks and some tricky pro.

First ~25 feet off the ground is very loose and chossy, however once at the roof there is pretty solid gear and the climbing, particularly the top-out is awesome! Know what you're getting into, and consider angling left and traversing back right once under the roof.
