This route features technical edging and side-pulling up a gently overhanging layback feature between yellow lichen streaks. After a bear hug section, rock over the arete onto the slab. Tip toe up the slab a couple moves before moving back left around the arete and to the anchor.
Upon seeing this route for the first time, one climber(Heff Jamlin) said "If I was a rock, I'd want to have sex with it." It's a gem.
Located in grotto 100 feet past warm-ups.
9 bolts to anchor.

One of the best routes in flagstaff, and probably a little stiff for 12d!

5 tries and I give my routes 12d. Hamlin questioned 12d even though he got it 2nd go. A 4th ascent should clear this up. David? John? Either way it's a very satisfying climb. Way to clean up Joel.
