This climb is fairly sustained, without ever really having a 5.12- move. There are a few good rests and mini cruxes the whole way. A very good CK route.

Very fun route, will get better with more traffic. Though probably not 5.12 overall, there is a whole lot of 5.11 climbing on this one!

Really fun route, but you might want a helmet on your belayer. There are a few thin dinner plate flakes that are going to give one of these days. Though I would have loved to add a 12a onsight to my list, it felt much easier than that to me...probably closer to 11c, really.

Awesome climbing, lots of sidepulls & oppositional feet, styles not overly common in Tensleep. Almost felt more like granite face climbing except for the smattering of typically great pockets everywhere. 11d/12a? Doesn't matter! Fantastic addition Charlie & Mike.

Really enjoyed this route! Feel the 11d/12- is appropriate: couple notches harder than Save the Best for Last, comparable to Dope and Wu-Tang on the Shinto (both 12a), in the ballpark with Mike's Got a Dirty Diaper (11d), albeit shorter.

Easy to set up (hang draws, t.r., etc) from Insane Hound Posse anchors.
