2 out of 5 stars May be worth taking a medium cam

PG-13 for the decking potential from bolt 1-3. Not a bad route. Not great, either. Pumpy roof.

4 out of 5 stars beautimus

layback crack is awesome, roof is sweet, and the last clip is difficult if you are pumped!

3 out of 5 stars Intimidating at first sight.

The third bolt is at least 10 feet above the second bolt, and there is a ledge 15feet up that you scramble up to clip the first bolt. It looked like definite decking potential to me, and the necessity to clip that dangerous third bolt from a layback (not my specialty).

Onsight spoiler ahead... do not call it an onsight if you read on from here.
There is a nice edge for your feet that is not visible from the ground, which you can stand partly on to clip the third bolt.
