This route is like a little piece of Rumney transplanted about 100 miles east. It Ain't Pretty climbs up a sinuous line of ill-defined corners on the far left end of the cliff. This is the schist part of the crag. The cool granite starts a bit to the right. As with most shisty climbs, this route offers strange climbing on a daunting array of corners, blocks, and ledges. As for the crux, I'd say it was more sustained than cruxy. I just felt off-balance the whole way.
sorry to blow the onsight: there is a no hands res...

This is a very enjoyable route in my opinion. Might be the best 12a to break into at shagg instead of shaggin wagon.

Agreed. Way easier than the wagon.

Would someone send me a personal message with beta on how they do the crux. I am still a little mystified!
