Exiting the roof at the top.

Description 

This is the obvious wide crack in a corner right of "Gun Control."

Bushwhack through a few bushes, and start up the wide crack to a roof. Exit the roof to right, and belay off of a tree. The off-width horror can be minimized by using features outside of the crack.

Protection 

Nothing smaller than a BD #4. Double BD 4s, 5s, and a single six would sew it up. Long pants and a long sleeve shirt are advised.
