Launch into a series of small overlaps. Tough for the grade but an absolute classic.

A tough low percentage throw right off the ground leads to easier but still tricky climbing into a v shaped notch. Navigate around some bird crap to reach the base of the roof. Take a couple of deep breaths before powering through a hard to read roof sequence.
