Climb Thrutch to the large ledge then step left and climb the wall to reach the roofs. Move up and right to the groove that splits the second overhang and finish steeply up this. Fine climbing that feels longer than it is.

Was really impressed with this route though it would benefit from more traffic to keep it clean. Nice moves out of Thrutch and up the wall to the roof; the traverse right isn't as intimidating as it first seems and the roof section has monster holds. Good gear throughout (once out of Thrutch).
