[Mike Coles, 1 kb]A Main Cliff classic. Start at the RH end of Cemetery sector where the roofs end. Climb easily to the half-height ledge. Clip a bolt below the roofs and pull up on a jug to clip a second. Now attack the roofs with a couple of hard moves to reach jugs and pull up to a rest. Finish via a thin crack.

Great exposed moves on the overhang! Not so hard when I knew the crux sequence.
Nick Russell - Lead RP - 10/Jul/13 with James

Awesome moves and exposure! Cut loose for the photos! Tricky sequence below the roof but now I know where I'm going it should be ok. Just got to come back for the tick...

To second to last bolt where the rope stopped!
Dizz - TR dog - 09/Jun/12 with David B

Getting off the ledge was quite difficult as a relatively short person - there are no feet and the first good hold was beyond my reach. The actual roof section is not as bad as it looks, if you have the strength left in you and know where the holds are. It's also well protected. In general this is an awesome climb with fantastic moves, and I'd love to come back and redpoint it some time.
