Start on the left side of the Roots boulder wall on the long continuous diagonal flake on a jug. Traverse the flake all the way across the wall, gaining height as you go, once the flake ends, top out up and right on good holds next to a tree. Great holds the whole way, high at the end but not overly so, a nice line.

Compared to a v2 in Pway, this thing is a 0. Really fun, though.
