2 out of 5 stars Ugly Short Route

Boulder up to roof and clip the anchors from a good sidepull on the left. The bolt on the roof is a spinner and so is one of the anchors.

3 out of 5 stars Short and Pumpy

You really can't waste any time on this route. It's hard to find a good rest, so you might as well go for it. I felt like the crux was pulling the roof at the end, right before clipping the anchors.

4 out of 5 stars Fun stuff

Great climb. Very pumpy. The crux is definetly at the bottom. The first clip is a bit nerve racking, because there is a large rock below you. It felt really good to get the first clip in. Be warry of the anchors at the top. One is good, but the other could use a little work.
