Description

Technical crimps to a big move. Had been graded 12d in earlier guides, but seems quite a bit easier. Great route though.

To the right of BYOB

Protection

A great route, The route must be in a different state than when it was given a 12d, with a kneebar, some heel-hook and drop knee action, this felt a lot closer to the 12a side, don't let the big number keep you off this line! Sep 15, 2017

Really fun. Short route with no super hard moves, but no easy moves either. Stupid anchor. Nov 7, 2013

Another fun, short, powerful route on the Beer Block. I didn't find any shutdown moves, but not many easy moves either. Felt about 12b using my sequence, however you could make it harder by only using holds directly on the bolt line, and not use some of the good holds 2 feet off the bolt line. Maybe that's the reason for the original 12d grade. Nov 5, 2007
