Amazing new roof!! Start on a small right undercling and the large feature in the middle of the roof for your left. Very cool tension moves out the roof.

This is thing full-on! The low start is going to be hard.

all moves done from the low...should go at v9...tried it from the low low using underclings at the bottom and the block not on the boulder for feet...thing would be double digits for sure with out the block maybe using towhooks out left?

This problem will go without the detached block for feet. There will also be a low start to the left that will be incredibly hard but logically links into this. Updated the description to indicate the most natural starting position for the stand start.

The moves on this are fantastic! We ran out of light and had to bail. The full line will be very difficult and I think it will be one the lake's hardest.
