Scramble across top to climber's left and rap from top of Roller Coaster.

4 out of 5 stars What? The roof isn't the crux?

I fell lots of times on this route trying to get the crux move - which, by way was not the roof as I thought it would be from the ground. I finally did, after lots of flailing, get the layback-smear move, it seemed _much_ harder than other 10c's I led at JT. I agree the bolt seems a bit akwardly placed - it seems one has to clip it from the middle of he crux move. If it were a bit lower or to the right one could clip it before starting the crux, which would indeed be nice. When I finally got to the roof it looked difficult, but in the end I pulled it on my first try - so I suppose its easier than it looks. The coolness of that roof made up for all the flailing I had to do at the crux to get there.

4 out of 5 stars great route

Great route that was a bit stout for the grade. Crux was definitely switching cracks near the bolt.
