5 out of 5 stars last route of the day

This doesn't require any runouts, but the move out of the roof is committing. A green alien, blindly placed (and inspected) provides pro at the crux. A yellow green might be better. The upper bit can be protected by a green camalot in a hidden horizontal.

4 out of 5 stars Fun Sustained lie-backing

This was a funny onsight cuz right before the crux lie-back out of the roof my belayer gets my attention "shoulda flaked the rope". I look down to see a nice figure eight just beyond his atc. stressin a bit i decide to down climb the roof traverse as he feeds rope through the figure 8 then i chill on a good stance and wait while he pulls the whole 70 though the knot the long way. kinda phased but reclimb the roof and pull the crux and clip the pin. after the pin though my legs start shakin and just barely pull off the runouts. pretty proud and prolly not the best warmup route/early morning onsight.
