This is a great route! Easily one of my favorites at spring. A fairly sustained vertical section leads to super fun big moves between jugs. DO IT!

Indeed a great route! I think it's a little harder than other 11a's I've done though. A friend (who regularly climbs much harder) blew the clip at the crux. Just enough distance between bolts there to get you to the small ledge below. Maybe not quite PG13 but still be aware of that clip.
