Funky little route that starts low, but you can easily traverse in from the right and avoid the roof. After the roof it's a fun jug haul to the top. You can top rope this if the climber follows the rope through the draws, but lowering off this way is not recommended. Your rope will shred a little on the chicken heads.

4 bolts, anchors on top

A fun climb but not the best to lead as a fall going to the 2nd bolt will result in a grounder. This route shares anchors with the one to the right but really the last bolt should just be doubled to spare your rope any undue damage.
