This is a tough finish. I led Post Road and then used the anchor to try this on top rope. So glad I was not on lead! That move to pull the roof is very challenging! Fun! I would call this "exposure" for a small single pitch crag.

The second larger roof above the ledge in the middle of the climb is an excellent exposed roof. I thought it was better than the first roof and definitely worth doing. A TR can be set from the trees above with a 60m rope.

2nd roof is called Blow Up (5.9). Makes a great 2nd mini-pitch for any of the Main Face routes. Protects well.
