Start with some slabby moves up to a puzzling undercling with bad feet to gain a FATTY jug at the overhang. From here a couple brutally off-balance and awkard moves gain a secure slab. From here enjoy the intuitive climbing on great positive jugs, edges, and flakes the whole way up. Two variations near the top, one goes right to an obvious juggy sidepull, the other (slightly harder) stays left in a small corner.


The small roof/ trihedral feature with a smooth slab start just to the right of Pearl Necklace and Summer Sun. Otherwise known as the fourth route to the right of the Dirty Bird Roof.


Bolts to quick-clips (!) at the top.

Fun climb on great rock that is nowhere near as polished as SE proper, I gave it 5.10c, maybe I was tired, but there's a 5.10a and 5.11a just to the left of this climb that both seem easier. The roof is rad and super positive, but once you pull the roof there's a transfer that is harder than anything on Pearl Necklace or Unholy, unless you are my 6'2" 150 pound partner.

Oh and on a side note the left anchor is what you will with that, still worth it.

I agree that there's a little cruxy bit just after the roof. I found the trick to be staying a little bit further right than would seem likely.
