I do not lead 5.12c, but I have done the first pitch of this route and felt it was appropriate to post this because this wall holds supposedly the toughest crack in Colorado at 5.13d as well as other respectable routes. The route as well as the route name is called Renaissance Wall and is located just to the west of The Book. Hike to the second corredor west of the book and hike up until you see some steep sport routes on your right. The route is the last one on the right. The first pitch is a couple 5.11 moves off the ground and fun flake pulling afterwards. The second pitch is the tough sustained 5.11/5.12, and the last a 5.11 pitch.


9 or 10 quickdraws, strong fingers.

Per MauryB: as a 2 pitch route, make sure you have 15 draws + anchors. It would be unnecessary to stop and belay it separately. An 80m rope just gets you back to the P1 anchors.
