Description 

This worthwhile climb has a cool roof in the middle. Climb 15 feet to the first bolt then pull a few moves to gain a small ledge below the roof. Pull the roof and continue to another bolt then to the top.

Protection 

When you get pro, it's bomber. All you really need are .5 - 3 camalots, two extendable draws for the two bolts and lots of long slings. There is one rusty bolt at the top for an anchor, but you're much better off belaying off trees.
