Looking down after climbing straight up the Roofus...

Description 

Start the route just like the "Sagas 50" until you get to the roof (Roofus). Once you get to the roof, go straight up the roof without going left or right of it. The Roofus is the crux of the route. There is only 1 good hold on the roof itself, the rest are slopey. There is a loose and moving hand hold on the right side, but it can be used gently. It is a very interesting route that requires a lot of upper body strength, but finding foot holds (which is not easy) is the key.

Location 

The route is located right next to "WTF".

Park the car at the parking area, follow the trail, and it's the first wall with a roof after the boulders. It is in the same area as "Sagas 50" and "Dos Gorditos".

Protection 

We would recommend to top rope this route, because the roof is hard and there is only 1 spot to place a small and iffy piece of pro way below the roof. So falling is highly not recommended.
