Description:

Start at the belay anchor atop P1 of 'Fat Merchant Crack'. Follow the left-leaning corner up to the roof, then traverse right to finish with P3 of 'Bolee Gold'.

A dangerously sharp edge at the beginning of the traverse out of the roof has resulted in a fatal accident. The sharp edge may or may not still be there, but the risk can be mitigated by placing additional protection for the follower directly after the crux.
