FA: Dick Williams, Roy Kligfield, 1973
A wild crux roof. Wander up the face 30 feet right of the Casa Emilio corner (5.6+) passing two old pins. Clip and back up a third pin at an obvious flake in the roof. This is it - pull the roof. (Height-dependent 5.8; crimpy or slopey intermediate holds exist if you can't technique up to the thank-god jug.)
Rap to the ground (only single rope needed) or the second pitch goes at 5.6.
Thanks to the Swain guidebook for portions of this description.

A very goopd route with fun moves. I'm 5'5" and didn't think that the roof was height related at all, certainly not the 5.9 that some books call it. Don't say you did the route if you skipped the second pitch...
Followed the first pitch, definitely hight dependent, but if you get your left foot up in the crack between two flakes, itís not too reachy. Lead the second pitch, but don't know why it was recommended, did not really like it, the only good thing about it was the view at the belay...
