12a if u iron cross to the left after the arching crack.
11b if u climb the obvious line. then face a heinous/scary traverse to get to the chains.

The white wall is not the first area you come to after passing the falls. There are 2 places with 2 short routes each before getting to the white wall.
Bottom Feeder is a contrived, forced line. The 12a is, as Ryan said, the IC move that's not even that hard. The obvious line up the crack can take you a long way right, way right of the bolt line. Best beta? Do another route!

|Am I missing something? I have done this route a coupe times. It seems to follow the obvious flake then moves about 3' left at the top of it (easy traverse on overhanging jugs) then straight up on huge jugs to chains. A 5.10d at the most IMO.|
