This is a great climb that requires both strength and technique. Climb vertical rock past two bolts to a stance below the roof. Clip another bolt here and use whatever strength you have to pull over. This is the crux. The face above is where the technique is involved as you climb sequential technical moves to the anchor.
This is the third bolted route from the left. It starts from level ground in the corridor and climbs red, lichen stained rock to a small roof that contains black lichen. Descend from a two bolt anchor shared with YngYngYng
6 or 7 bolts to a two bolt anchor.
Shaking out after the tough stuff.

I think this climb has 2 cruxes. One is below the roof, a technical sequence on a flake that looks like it could go. This climb will probably get harder when it does. There's some beta to get through the second crux involving your left hand. The second crux has a large move which is great fun. Get on it!
