Great route that has cleaned up since the 1990s, when it had some friable holds. One that was glue reinforced and was the clip hold for the 4th bolt. Bob used the wrong sort of glue, and after it got wet, it was useless. I pulled this hold off around 1998 and what a rude surprise as I whipped off. Luckily I wasn't clipping. Ever since, the route has been harder than 5.12a. I climbed it again in 2008 & 2012, and it is solid 5.12b if not 5.12b/c. Sustained moves from the 2nd to 6th bolt. Great vertical face.

Sharp, short, and bouldery, fun sequence and worthy. Probably the best route at this crag with Midnight Express. Skip the rest of the crag.
