J&T was definitely harder for me... Much more beta intensive. Probably the hardest of the Honeymooner's 12b's IMO. Harlequin went down second go, J&T took serious work to dial in.

Sacrilege is the most height and body dependent of them all - you need a "goldilocks" just right height of about 5'6-9, or you're either too scrunched or too short to do the move comfortably. I flashed it, but have seen far stronger (taller and shorter) climbers unable to pull the crux. Nov 8, 2016

I really enjoyed the route and I thought 12b was fair. The upper crux reminded me of the crux on another Doug Reed 12b at Crowders called Fashion. I feel like J&T is harder than Harlequin but my wife feels like J&T is easier. Maybe it's a height thing. We both felt like Sacrilege was the hardest, mainly because neither of us can even come close to doing the move on it. Nov 8, 2016

Such a great climb - way more consistent and sustained than Sacrilege, but without the ultra hard crux. "12b" if you compare it to its neighboring routes, probably harder elsewhere in the gorge. How did it stack up to J&T and Sacrilege in your opinion? Nov 7, 2016
