A physical crux! I recommend clipping the second bolt with an extended draw to reduce rope drag, otherwise the rope experiences some sharp angles moving from 2 to 3.

My first 5.11 roof! It was solid core, great foot work. And max commitment to rise over the roof. A bad ass sequence to be sure, and something you'll regret leaving off your black cliffs checklist. It has a hell of a lot to teach about roof climbing!!
