What the heck? I've always wanted to try the first move on this, so I finally put a stick clip on the first bolt today, and there doesn't seem to be a move at all. If anybody has beta, let me know. This seems like it must be much harder than 12a unless I'm missing something obvious. Oct 14, 2012
I have tried this hideous start to The Host a couple times in past years. I have struggled to figure it out. It is quite hard. Probably ought to be called 5.12 not just 5.12a. Jun 11, 2017
