This one scared me a little bit. Above a 13' runout when at roof before bolt clipped. I found myself saying I hate slabs two bolts above the roof at a tenuous stance. Just mental though, decent climbing.

This WAS run out as the roof bolt and the bolt below that were both missing. Now it is much better.

IMO the crux above the roof is harder than the moves on Slab Master

There is a definite crux after the roof, but this route is fantastic. Yes it is a bit run out pulling the roof, but if you are solid at the grade its really just mental practice, look for the juicy jug.

I did not find this route runout pulling the roof. There is a bolt ABOVE the roof you can clip before making any roof moves. For me, at 5'8", it was not a reach at all. It is a bit tenuous above the roof, as described by others. Very thin face. I think an edge has broken since the old days. For a slightly easier variation, head right after second bolt above roof (look for large pocket) to anchors for Super Slab.
