Tried this. No idea where the anchors were..... It was starting to get steep for a 5.5 and I got spooked. So I headed right and anchored to a tree. The right was all overgrown and licheney, so I could not keep going up the easy way to the anchors.

Could the true way really be straight up on top of the roof? Maybe I am a wuss on trad lead, I don't know.

The anchors are shared with ooga. Kind of tricky getting to them if you TR. Only one big reach about half way up, other than that it is a very fun climb.
