Great roof problem! Even better than it looks. This is what you come to the area for... Awesome hand crack through the roof. Little slabby run-out between the 3rd and 4th bolts, but it's easy climbing through there.
The book calls it 5.10. I'd say it's on the easier side of 10. Maybe 10a or 10b. My partner did make the comment, that he felt it was harder than X-unctions roof.

Great route, too bad it's so short. The first part looks like solidified mud, but once you get in the crack it's bomber. The holds are all there but the moves are airy, and I wouldn't want to fall from the mantel with the 3rd bolt not clipped. Move quick if you can't reach the bolt. The rope will want to lodge itself in a slot when you clip that 3rd bolt, get it out or you'll feel like you're dragging you belayer up !

Choose between either heinous rope drag or risking a bigger fall at the crux. A 0.4 Camalot backs up the roof bolt nicely.

Mind the rope drag after the roof pull. Frayed up my rope a bit, but a very cool lead. A little sketchy when the roof crack is wet, but still fun.

Note: The jug hold on the corner of the roof is starting to move a bit. It seems fairly solid but wobbles a bit when weight is placed on it.
