Description Suggest change

The thin flakes seem to keep breaking, which lead to the rating change from 5.12a to 5.12b. After the publishing of Roxanna Brock's new guide another flake broke on a gaston move, resulting in locals raising the grade another letter to 5.12c.

Easy climbing to the first bolt turns difficult quickly as you encounter a thin crimp. Some technical footwork leads you higher (3rd bolt) where you enter the second crux sequence, including a gaston to a small broken flake. IF you can pull through this move the difficulty eases and the anchors await.

Location Suggest change

This is the third route from the far end of the corridor on the West side. It is next to Sunsplash (5.13b).

Protection Suggest change

Several bolts to chain anchors.
