I felt like the logical thing to do was bust right from the last bolt, palming the sloping arete, and cruise up and left on the arete/lip feature. This made the finish more like 11d. I couldn't pull the harder direct move but it seemed contrived to me, as the easier beta only takes you about 4' off the line of the route.. Hmmm.... Well, the bottom cruxes are aweome too, so whichever way you do this route it's sure to be a winner!

The guidebook lists this as a 5.11b/c. Perhaps the current rating of 5.12b/c is a typo?

One of my favorite lines at Isolation Canyon to date as the rock is stellar and the climbing is sustained. Small rests reduce but never eliminate the pump. The movement is thoughtful, desperate, and varied. Kudos!
