Description 

Start with powerful layback moves with optional protection via big cam behind flake that can be walked. Work up past more gear and a couple small trees to a good stance, fire up to the crux and get ready to leave skin pulling the roof/flake. You can top out and join up with the anchors on swiss cheese but pro up high isn't great...maybe I'll add a bolt one day.

Location 

Route starts just behind a small tree at the base of the slab that swiss cheese the popular 57R is on, the route is the left crack with the detached looking block at the top,which is actually not going anywhere

Protection 

Standard rack, option of a 5 inch cam to protect start. Great gear belay in a crack atop the roof, walk off via the moderate scrambles to the east.

Not 100% sure if I am the FA, there was no info in the guide book or on here, so if anyone knows different please let me know.
