Hike left from the slab lines through some boulders to reach a pair of lines which begin on a 10 foot high roof. This is the rightmost and more difficult of the two. Step up on a boulder to start. Haul your feet up over the roof then angle right through bulges. Bring your crack climbing skills for the groove leading to the anchors.

definitely longer than sixty-five feet and it took ten draws plus anchors.. pretty fun, though. maybe it was because i thought i was on 10c but this felt harder than 11a to me.

This is much better than the 2 stars. Given the sit down ledge rest, this was a good warm up for the steeper section of the wall.
