An excellent route. Nice clean rock and an exciting roof which looks harder than it really it.
Start: It's on top a boulder pile.
Pitch 1: The first two - three moves are the crux. Basically, no protection whatsoever until you make the moves to a horizontal. Guidebook suggests yellow alien, I used my yellow metolius (#3). After the horizontal, move up right to a small left-facing block/corner. Get on the corner and start straight up to the left facing flake, then start moving left and up the face to a ledge. And then aim for the roof, move left to exit the roof and up to bolted anchors. (80ft, 5.7/PG)

* Make sure your belayer spot you, the initial bouldery move is probably a v1 but don't blow it.
