Description 

Climbs moderate terrain for 2 bolts before connecting with the regular McFlatus Roof route. While this variation is listed in the McFlatus Roof route description, I felt like it deserved its own description here because it avoids the hard face crux at the bottom of McFlatus Roof. Instead, the roof at the top of the pitch is the crux. It's a nice way to avoid that hard face move, perhaps making it a better warm-up for those wary of starting out on something crimpy right off the deck.

Location 

This is a 2-bolt variation to McFlatus Roof, starting 10 feet to the left of the regular route.

Protection 

8 (?) bolts.
