Shittin Bricks is one of the longest 5.12s at the Forks! Work the tight finger jams, positive small edges, and some burly stemming to reach easier climbing... The rest of the route is really fun, and varied with all sorts of different crack styles. Although the grade backs off it certainly keeps after you to the top! A long classic if you are looking for such...
This is also a good one to save for a strong onsight attempt as the gear is good and it is one of only two .12- routes at the Forks that's a safe bet for such.
Around the corner from the Prow, past Yardarm and all that. It kind of just appears with not too much else around it.
Thin cams at the start, the doubles from #.3 through #3.

12a seems reasonable. In your face at the start to cruiser 5.10 climbing for a long ways. Requires the ability to perform all crack skills...stemming, laybacking, fingers, hands, flare, wide, face, etc. Deserves more ascents than it gets.
