Pitch 1 below the roof
Justifiably popular 4-pitch sport route that leads to the top of the rim. Each pitch is interesting and varied. Pitch 1: 10c, 20 m. Pitch 2: 10d, 20 m. Pitch 3, 11a/b, 30 m. Pitch 4, 5.9, 18 m. The third pitch ends on a ledge that if you walk east will lead to the Tick Farm, etc. If you rappel the route make sure to knot the ends of the rope. A doubled 60 m rope is just barely long enough!
After First Girlfriend Buttress do not climb up to the Tick Farm/Amphitheater but continue strait around the base of the main cliff for about 10-15 minutes. There is a cairn below the route. You can easily see the roof on the first pitch.

Linking pitches 1 & 2 is logical and makes for a stellar pitch! Much different than your typical Bitterroot line. The whole thing is stellar especially the fingers on the crux pitch.
