Does anyone know how this climb is supposed to end? In his guidebook Eric Ulner says to cut back left on a "shelf" after ascending the crack to the roof. I tried this via a BIG (definitely way harder than anything else so far) step across to a "shelf", protected by a fixed nut, and found the ledge to promptly end before I could get around to the tree I wanted to anchor from. I ended up bailing from the fixed nut after I couldn't find any 5.8 pg moves; I've only ever heard people do the same.
