The crux is not the roof navigation... It's the bulge after it. Good thing there's a nice ledge to stand and look at a while, feel every hold once or twice, back down once or twice, then sack up.

Worthy addition, trundled a bunch of rock out of the anchor ledge today. Should be more safe now.

Roll is right on. Fun route once I committed to making the move.

The bulge sequence was trickier than I expected on a 5.9, probably harder for vertically-challenged. Fun to do anyway.

I took the route straight up from the ledge instead of going out onto the bulge. I would say this variation is about 10a. Fun route.

Did this route at the end of July. Between the roof and the first slab moves above it definitely felt closer to .10a

Fun climb! Definitely felt more like a .10a to me though.

Grade is correct IMO. 5.9+. The buldge move is tricky, but not really a 10 move.
