Definitely not 12a more like 12b or just solid 12.

I thought this route was badass. I'd call it solid 12. Technically very demanding and a couple powerful moves.

An interesting but inconsistent line. The first 3 bolts are powerful, sustained, and technical. The crux sequence is a unique undercling to cross-through crimp with a drop-knee. Unfortunately the route finishes with a whimper as opposed to a whipper. The last two bolts try to force the climber onto harder territory but the features to the right are the natural line.

5 bolts to chains. Some may opt to stick clip the first bolt.
