Good route - nice tope section.

Tried lead onsight first n got penultimate bolt clipped but strength failed at roof. Easy when top-roped with guidance. My first roof problem.

First attempt was pants, clipped first bolt with clip stick, clipped second then stopped. Andy took over lead clipped the next two but could not get past the height of the flow stone on the left. I lead again this time topping out on the top (5) finish but went out to the big ledge on the right at the top to do so. Going straight up at the top appeared very blank. The only route we topped out on a very poor day!!
