Description:

Don't know the proper name of it, or the rating. I just know it has been done. Start in the middle under the overhang mentioned in Flip Flop. Send the overhang using the large bomber hold mid roof. Pull the roof and top it out (somehow) R rating because of the huge boulder under the roof. Bring lots of pads for this one. EDIT: See below ascent for details.

Descent Options:

Downclimb lowball crack, V0-, on other end of boulder. (Labeled as Flip Flops on rockclimbing.com )

4 out of 5 stars Roof of Death

Exciting. Tree has fallen causing sense of exposure to seem greater.

3 out of 5 stars This sounds like

This sounds like Roof of Death (V3). Landing is actually not that bad minus the huge boulder. Basically think of it as lower landing and upper landing. Both are flat. Both are safe. Just 4 ft difference in height. 1-2 pads is honestly enough. To the right is a hard line and further right is razor arete which goes at V9ish.
