Description:

Start at a ledge 25' up from the base, easy slab scramble to this point. Stay left of the blank face but not on the easy ledge. Keep moving up the face, extending the lower pieces. Pull the roof to the left of a bolt (don't use the bolt it should be 10' or so away). Good protection in the crack on the roof. Pull over and onto the thin face. Make a couple delicate steps to the left then up to the top. Lay back on the center face with your feet sketchen on lichen for fun. Great slab, full 50M rope if you start from the ledge, 60M if from the very base, but the rope drag would be nasty. Then for a bonus do Saucer Lucy right next to it after the rap (oh yeah, bring a second rope for the rap).
