Stellar route in the middle of the 12 wall. Between Steelworker and Big Money Grip. Takes an impressive overhanging line through jugs to a marginal rest, maybe catch a bad kneebar before charging into the crux section then into a steep pumping jug/edge haul to the anchors.


Up the stairs past the climber's cabin, take a left before you hit the 11 wall and continue on the trail to the 12 wall. Front and center.


8 bolts to chains. If you're lucky (like we were) there might be fixed draws.

This is considered one of the hardest 12a's in the Red. This climb might make Big Money Grip feel easy.
