This route starts from the belay anchors one pitch up (at the end of pitch one of "Unnamed Route 15", Unnamed Route 16 or Cause for Pause).
Step carefully up and left on a steep wall above the roof. Then continue up a long low angle dihedral to the right. When the diheral ends continue slightly to the left around a small roof to the anchors.
This is great pitch, with though-provoking moves through the initial face section and continuous, surprising moves up the dihedral. Highly recommended second pitch to route #16.


Bolts protect the entire route, but do not expect a sport climb! 10 bolts in 140 feet, you do the math.
Cams (0.5"-2") may be used to add protection at the upper roof section.

I had always wanted to do this just because it looks cool. It ended up being even better than it looks due to a long ramp you climb after the roof traverse. It heads up and right after the traverse.
