Description:

Line left of Gas Boost. Fine overhanging stone with huge holds leads to crux roof pull. Some aspiring pocket pullers have taken big falls from this roof. Great pumpy moderate!

3 out of 5 stars Fun Roof..

Fun climb. with some bad feet. It takes getting used to the feet. some akward clipping stances, but all in all a good route.

3 out of 5 stars pumpy

not much rest. I'd like to lead this when I'm fresh. As it was my arms were already pretty tired. This is no cake walk if your arms are pumped.

3 out of 5 stars tough for a 5.9

I don't think this route is quite a 5.10a, cause other than the crux, it's not bad at all. I'd say a 5.9+ though.

4 out of 5 stars Well protected pumpy lead

Half the clips are from a very tenuous stance and there aren't many rest spots. Brutal for a 5.9 sport lead, but very fun.
