Probably the hardest move on the whole wall?

This starts just to the left of a big tree at the base. The face is well-featured with holds and the bolts lead to a stance on a sloping ledge below a roof. Turning the roof is the crux and involves a long reach.


This is the furthest right of the bolted lines at the crag. Descend from a two bolt, cold shut anchor.


7 bolts to a two bolt anchor.

Pulling the roof is strenuous and committing, but the holds are fairly large and positive. Overall this roof felt easier to me than the roof on Passing The Baton. The real hard part is the scary moves just before the roof.
