Description 

fun and technical 5.12 climbing. one crux at midheight involving balance and mental trickery to get high up under some underclings. Then get ready to get thin for the last 3 bolts. would be 5 stars if the rock quality on the upper holds were a little better...

Location 

the next route left of Grindrite

Protection 

bolts, open shuts...

12a/b!? Tech nine ninja skills required on this mega crimp fest. Somebody probably did this with ticks, a power assisted belay, and some serious toprope hangdogging. Not as hard as Piranha but definitely 12b.

Stiff for 12b but lots of fun. Definitely better rock then wolly bugger and steel monkey
