This is a BRILLIANT pitch of climbing. And a very hard 12a.
The roof is great! The stemming is Great! The crux seem to be clipping the 3rd and fourth bolts. If you manage that it's time to grind your teeth and pull a few cranky moves that get you through the roof. From there it's all over. WOW.

Great climb! Crux comes after the third bolt, transitioning from techy stemming to balancy crimps. Climb straight up over the arete for a no-hands rest before pulling through the fun, pocketed roof.

Do people actually stem through the corner to the jug, or cut right around the arrette. I couldn't figure out how to stay in the corner.
