Fun relaxing cruise after pulling the roof

Description 

Start below the fixed pin (good to clip a 24" runner) and climb the lower face past two bolts. Clip the first bolt on the upper headwall and pull the roof move. Continue up past two more bolts to a two-bolt anchor.

Location 

Located on the center of the formation. This is currently the only bolted route on the formation.

Protection 

6 bolts, 2-bolt anchor.

BTW, could probably use one more bolt next the top slab. Get ready for a heady finish.
