Start at the thin crack under the left part of the roof. Climb the crack to the roof and pull it. Follow the left-facing flake to the top.

4 out of 5 stars My variation on PVO

My variation on PVO is to get into the dihedral and move out left to the arete in order to pull the roof. As far as I'm concerned its a completely different line but according to the old timers at Great Falls its still PVO. Anyways, like most of Great Falls harder routes it feels like a highball boulder problem more than a route. My sequence felt like a V7. Super fun.
