This is the roof problem just left of I Promise... Rated 5.9+ on (prior to some gardening on the upper half). Starts with a slabby finger crack 15' up into a roof. Good pro throughout this section. Pull the roof (fun) and continue up a slab on discontinuous shallow parallel cracks (bring small stoppers / cams). The slab starts out feeling 5.8ish but becomes lower angle the higher you go. Pro is adequate but feels a little sketchy in places, a bit more gardening would probably open up more placements. Rap off of two 1/4" bolts at the end of the pitch (80+'), or continue with the second pitch of I Promise...

A surprisingly nice route. Not sure what the 'official' name is - some call it 'Number 9' or 'Karen Os' Sweatpants'. The roof is a lot of fun to pull, this section reminds me of Gonzo at Eldo. I was kind of grovelling on the slab section, the gear is thin in places, but mostly I was just being a pansy (and my calves were torched).

Prior to this Tom and I did a little gardening on the route he and Lou are working on ('Perfect for People'). The start is way out of my league, but above that it is a really nice 5.7ish chimney / corner.
