Description 

Start by gaining a low ledge that offers a good rest before you tackle the roof. Climb up to the roof and clip the permadraw hanging from the ceiling before you reach around the roof to the nice ledge. Throw a heel hook and reach for a sharp edge that can be used to pull roof. The crux is definitely holding on long enough to get over the roof. Hang on, you have a few more pumpy moves on the face before you clip the anchors

Location 

The route starts in the middle of the great roof on the ivory coast wall, about 10 feet left of the arete.

Protection 

6 bolts, 1 permadraw, 2 bolt anchor. Currently there are only quicklinks at the top, chains will be added on our next trip.
