One Stoney's best moderate top-rope problems.Getting up to the roof ironically provides the crux move; a tricky high-step with hands down low. The roof is pure fun if executed correctly. The slab above provides thoughtful moves to the anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in California

On 3/17/11 there are no bolts on the top, someone patched over them. There is a crack at the top where I put in a .75 green, #1 red, and #2 yellow, cams in and they were bomber. Lots of rope drag on this route even with extending it over the lip.

Wow - that's unfortunate, although it's possible to set up an anchor without bolts I think this is another good candidate for adding a good set of anchors.
