Donini story of first assent
By Bryan G
Oct 1, 2014
The crux is 0.5 (purple) Camalots, for those who don't know Alien sizes. Just a little bit wider than the crux of Butterballs and far harder for the grade.
This is sometimes regarded as the first 5.12 in Yosemite. If Fish Crack is in the running, then I suppose the Overpass should win the honor, since it's just as hard (imo) and was done a year earlier. Or if Fish Crack is downrated to 5.11 (which it maybe should be), and Overpass doesn't make the grade either, then I guess the title would go to Hotline, which is 5.12 no-doubt-about-it.
