makin my way through the steep part of the route


Short pumpy route with fun moves up a steep wall.


This is the (mostly) bolted line just left of CPOS. It's around the corner to the right of Mexican Crack


Bring draws and some stoppers or small cams for the finishing crack.

this route surely is harder than 12a. Im thinking 12c funk in the classic not so good way.
