really, really good route, but you would have to completely avoid using either crack whatsoever to approach 12a. this isn't really realistic though, as it would basically limit the route to a swath of rock about 2 feet wide.
the huecos aren't as bad as the sound in the guidebook description, but it helps to be creative with how you used them.
bolt job on this one was excellent, with good clipping stances and protection locations. a good one to push your limits on.
