Climb bottem of Aquarius to ledge, clip into belay anchor and pull rope and throw it back down to belayer to avoid rope drag. Climb up Whiptide corner then straight out roof, pull hard lip rt. of anchors to gain bucket, look around then jump off. No grabbing the anchors like a ween.

FA- really tough to bolt the roof. I couldn't get any gear that I had to stick, so I had to climb out and hang on one arm and drill until I fell off and repeat. Getting the bolt in the hole with one hand was tricky too. Ward was practicing his dynamic belays-big whips
