This was formerly known as The Price Is Right.
This is one of the best new lines on Cactus Cliff - I wavered a bit on whether it is 2 stars or 3. Comparing it to other 3 star lines like The French are Here, I finally decided on 2 stars - but it probably goes more like 2 and a half.
Start right of Puff Daddy on the left side of a prow. The climbing is great, with a very thin, crimpy, crux section down low (just believe), and a strange, desperate finish through awkward holds that finally relent to jugs.
There are good rests after the crux that will let you get it together before tackling the tricky finish.
It is hard for 12a but realistically not much harder than that.
In the nice pockets above the lower crux, getting ...

I bolted and redpointed this route. Bob D. happened to be there that day and I belayed him on a toprope burn of the route.
The correct name and and 1st ascent info is: Brett Pierce, Legend on the Fall.

This is an excellent route with a very lean and technical first crux and a slightly runout second crux above the last bolt where you don't want to fall.

Nice going, Brett. We were on it yesterday and enjoyed it.
First crux was fun, thin, technical. Second crux was pretty hard. Rest before you get there. You'll need it.

"Just believe" is so appropriate for the lower crux - even after finally figuring it out, it still felt like I had missed a crucial hold. Unbelievably thin and pretty frustrating. The upper section drops back down into hard 5.11 territory with great moves the whole way, so don't be discouraged if you're stuck at the crux!
