Description 

An exciting pull over a sweet roof. Start through some left facing flakes to a 5.8X mantle, clip a bolt and make some 10 moves to the first belay with three bolts, just under the roof.
Pull the great roof clipping a few fixed pieces, a little more 10 slab above to a two bolt belay.
Maybe best to rap from here, otherwise undercling under a roof about 20ft right, then up a juggy crack to join up with Super Pooper. Or, go straight up through a small roof to a thin seam with fixed pins (Pooper Scooper 11c).
We did the undercling roof, met Super Pooper and then got over to the bolted anchor on Flakes for a rap (one 70m ok).

Location 

Just left of Super Pooper, right of The Step.

Protection 

a few smaller pieces help, .3 BD at least.

Two dangers on this, under the roof there's two WAY loose blocks but they are easily avoided, probably should pull them out on a weekday soon. Second is at the start of P3, there's a .75 downward facing slot that my partner claimed was part of a larger loose block, this is located directly under the thin seam start of Pooper Scooper.

One more note, the manly way to do this would be to link P1 and 2.
