|The Minimum Crag
Rated 12d in the guide, this route has cleaned up nicely and has gotten significantly easier. Follow the line of bolts between Just Put It In on the left and Zoaster Toaster on the right. (FI is 4 routes right of Lunchables.) Three difficult sections separated by excellent rests, with the crux at the end. Note that a variation called Hooked on Estrogen (12c/d?)heads up and left after the 4th bolt of Functional Idiot.
13 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

no single move harder than 5.11 just better have eaten your wheeties for breakfast. Definitely rated on endurance more so than hardest move.

Really hard to rate this route, the moves maybe grace the 12- range at the very top, but your sooo pumped when you get there, they feel much harder than that. Very sustained climbing with a couple of shakes, to a steep thiner finish. 12b/c when you add the pump factor?

I thought this route was easier than any 12b in the canyon. The Big Calm feels quite a bit harder. No hands rest before crux, no pump to speak of.
