The annoyance of the easy "approach 1/2 pitch" through the bushes and choss is more than compensated for by the rad roofs up high.

There is a beta photo at the Main Cliff section. This route will work best by climbing an approach pitch to the top of the obvious tower (5.9ish). That will make the rope drag on the upper section a lot more reasonable and probably drops the difficulty a letter grade. I rapped it with single 70 but had to downclimb some, so if you do that, be very careful.
