In between Sacrificial Lizard and Tales from the Grypt, this climb looks 5.12, climbs 5.11, and is neglected by far too many climbers.

It climbs through a fairly straight forward face to a blanker looking section. Some decent pockets and adequate crimps take you to a Grypt-esque finish, although the best holds disguise themselves better than on Grypt.

On a final note, in the final 10-15 feet the rock quality worsens; so climb carefully and try not to pepper your belayer.

This one is really really hard for 11c, it is miles harder than it's neighbor "Tales from the Grypt". Also the crux is quite short and all on drilled pockets unfortunately making this no where close to a 4 star route imo.
