Climb the first pitch of the Farce. Proceed directly above the belay station and negotiate the ceiling via a thin crack and dikes-this is the crux. After pulling through the roof, finish up a short book/gully leading to the top of the lower buttress.

This is a fantastic 5.9 roof, very fun and well protected. To make it more fun, I would suggest doing the direct start. Not the .6 one, but below the big boulder in the obvious crack. This start is probably at least .9, maybe .10a. You can do it in one 60m rope stretching pitch. FUN ROOF!

(I, 5.10a): This is an excellent small ceiling/roof problem with a well protected crux on solid rock.
