Description 

Uphill from Konichiwa, you'll find a dihedral with a crack in it. Follow this crack up and then up past a couple of bolts to a decrepit rap anchor with lots of tat. It is barely worth the effort. It is better to follow the bolts on Rooftop Rodeo.

Protection 

Light rack and 2 QD to a 2 bolt anchor (if you intend to follow the original line at 5.9).

If you want more of a challenge, skip the first anchor and follow up the arete past 4 more bolts to a 2 bolt anchor at 90 feet (5.11).
