Tricky and committing four-move boulder problem at the roof. The climbing until and past the roof is 5.10.

In my recollection, being tall was a significant advantage for the crux on this route. I remember the beginning of the route being very easy (5.8?). The crux was a little tricky to figure out but not particularly difficult for me. The end of the route is about 15 feet of steep jug-bashing.

I'd give it 12a. sure the climbing before the roof is easy, but pulling the crux is definitely 12a in my estimation. there is now a fixed draw (chain) hanging at the crux, so it's easier to clean, and you can get on it and not leave a biner if you can't pull the crux.

Sorry, not 12a. Easy to a V3+ boulder problem. My beta was to get more of a side pull out of that pocket.

i thought it was fun getting there but its like 5.10 climbing, and then the 5.12 move came and i found out its not tall guy friendly at all! i saw 3 short guys get it no problem and then all of us tall guys had to get all ugly and make up moves that sucks. if they even got it.

Beta that would have helped me a lot would be to tape your right ring finger up pretty gratuitously. The first crux hold left my knuckle dented and torn

I worked the route...figured out the crux, now know the sequence. Will get a redpoint send next time i'm on it. I used the heel hook beta.
