The crux lunge.

Description 

This almost qualifies as a bolted boulder problem. Interesting, thin moves run straight up past the bolts. You can come in from the right, but it sets up better from below on the left. To quote Mark Rolofson's description: "Short, but sweet".


Protection 

Three bolts to a pair of anchor bolts with chains.

Pretty hard. Thin, long reaches. Stiff.

Short, and the moves are hard.

Not a gimme 12 even though it's only a few moves.

Super short but the movement is really fun. The third clip is a bit scary, it's a stretch for me at 5'9", decking is a real possibility on a blown clip. Hanging draws makes it a lot safer and easier.

Felt hard for a 12a, but I can't give it a 12b. Definitely did not want to fall before the 3rd bolt.
