Great dynamic movement on this one. Surprisingly pumpy for how short the route is.
Crux is between 2nd and 3rd bolt. Clipping the 3rd bolt definitely adds to the pump factor and the route is significantly easier with draws already in place. Mostly good jugs after that... you just have to manage the pump.

This line is CLASSIC, and as hard as steel shit, thrown by a steel monkey.
Polished holds of all types, up a steep section of rock. A must do for all 5.12 climbers. Super good.
