A definite sandbag. Rumor has it that the first ascentionist was well over 6 foot so the majority of the reaches were reasonable. Mike Doyle, who put up Lucifer 5.14c at Purgatory needed to red-point this line. 5.12- to 5.12+/.13- might be more appropriate as a grade. A truly height dependent line.

This route is extremely height dependent. If you're tall, the dyno's and deadpoints are less of an issue. Regardless, this is a must do route!

This is, hands-down, the best 12a I have ever done.

I did it all static...

I might be 6'4" though

Felt 5.12c to me, at 5 ft 9 inches with a 5 ft 11 inch wingspan. If I had an inch less reach it could have been 5.14! The crimp/pocket section in the middle of the route was also tricky. Great route!

At 6'5" with an even ape index, I feel this route is perfect for me. Super damn fun big, but static, moves for me. However my 5'5" wife couldn't even envision how someone her size could do it. Big, steep dynos I presume but man that would be incredibly difficult.
