Super steep with decent rests but an insanely hard crux at the grade.

If this route wasn't sandbagged already, a pretty useful hold broke at the beginning, making things a bit more grim. Still 12a, but you gotta earn every inch. Try this route at the end of your Tor session for full value.

Try the sit start for especially full value and some of the best moves on the route!

Agreed. And now that the base of the route is a bit lower than it's been in the past, it makes more sense for shorties anyway.
