Description 

Pretty sustained climbing with a fun move at the roof. Climb up the right side around the roof for 11a, direct up from 5th bolt for 11d.

For the 5.11a variation, move right at the bolt just before the roof, not at the roof itself. The 5.11d variation goes straight up, but both "pull" the roof at the same point where they meet up again.

6 bolts, bolted anchor

Couple of low percentage / techy moves at the anchor and you're a little above the bolt which adds some spice. Especially after a storm and it's wet! Everything on the route is classic new river with high steps on lock offs, slopey crimps, and perfect edges. There's a hold below the 5th bolt that is one of the most multidimensional holds I've ever encountered. I used it differently for the clip, moving off of right, and moving up! Really cool
