Lean across the gap between boulder and wall and grab a crazy chunk of rock sticking off the wall. Climb to a roof and pull onto the face and a beautiful crack. Continue up the last three quarters of the route jamming in the crack. Is there still a fixed nut in the alcove at the top?

10-16-16: there is a loose block in the crack, after you pull the initial roof section and before you reach an ok rest at a horizontal. you can fingerlock next to the block and sidepull the block and it won't move. but if you pull down on it from the top it will shift out towards you. just a heads up. there is good gear in the horizontal so you don't have to place next to the block.

this is an awesome route.

8-4-17: Loose block is still there, and still shifts if you pull down on it, but don't let that deter you from getting on this awesome route. That block is totally avoidable!
