Description 

When in doubt, downgrade it. That's my way of saying this link-up of Der Squeal and Der Stihl felt pretty dang hard for 13b, with at least four cruxes (more like five), but I just can't quite convince myself to take credit for it as a soft 13c. Nonetheless, it's another great enduro tour of the Bauhaus.

Climb the first five bolts of Der Squeal, then make a tricky traverse left across awesome, grey-streaked stone with pockets to meet up with Der Stihl at a good left kneebar, which is below an interesting and rather powerful undercling crux. Above that, a long, immaculate headwall keeps you on your toes all the way to the anchors.


Location 

This route starts on the far right side of the wall.


Protection 

The route is equipped with cable draws. It would be nice if at least one of them were longer in a key spot to alleviate rope drag, as the route cuts hard left for 10 feet before going straight up. It helps to back-clean the first two bolts up to the first roof.

One of my friends, a short guy, like 5'4", found some beta that avoids the final crux and keeps the section at 5.11. That's all I'm gonna say about that....
