Begin a couple of feet right of Carcus Tunnel Syndrome and climb the right facing corner, follow the bolts until the end of the overhanging flake, orginal 12a version goes straight, however, the most climbed path on this route acutally traverses right under the crux and then up and back left to go at 11b.

Many bolts to cold-shuts.

Great route and pretty sustained. If you screw up the moves to the shuts you're gonna go for a hell of a ride. Here's a tip, don't grab the slopey rail.

Haha, I've taken that ride; it is long but safe. Definitely save some guns for the finish.

Even if you traverse to avoid the 12a crux, I thought it pretty stout for 11b. There are a couple of tough moves down low, and clipping the anchors is definitely the redpoint crux, especially if you have to hang the draws!
