This has a good bit of climbing on good rock, but the shallow slopers got the best of me in the heat a few times. Save this one for cooler temps. While there are a few 'hard' moves on this climb, there is really only one crux at the second to last bolt. There is a technical move near the first bolt, then the insecure crux.
This is the second from the rightmost sport climb on the Overhanging Wall.
6 bolts to an anchor.

This is currently not the rightmost route on the Overhung Wall; it is the second from the right. There is a hard move at the start, and a stick clip is very useful.

This route is not 5.12a and was never rated that until Tony Bubb posted it on this website. Originally it was documented as .12d in a "Rock & Ice" Front Range Climbing Guide. After climbing the route, I rated it 5.12c in my "1993 Boulder Sport Climbers Guide". After returning to it last fall, I am still calling it that. It is quite hard at the 1st bolt & also past the 4th & 5th bolt.

Ha. Well, in turn, I never never rated this route 12a until Mark Rolofson posted it on this website. I put on the website as "12-", as in: "the easier side of 12", but not necessarily 12a. I am not generally a 12+ leader, so I figured it to the bottom side of 12s.
Hopefully you didn't take offense to me having an opinion, regardless.
