Description

Incredible line straight up the center of the face. Follow small edges up to a slight traverse left to gain the flake. Layback up the flake and make a long, strenuous move back onto the face. Another hard move guards the finishing slab. Sustained. Try not to think about Bachar soloing it while your climbing.

9 quickdraws to mussy hooks

I did think about Bachar soloing while I redpointed. It didn't help.

But I still redpointed!

Awesome route. A must-do. Aug 16, 2010

Two cruxes -- one off the flake (left hand side pull, feet up, then launch up and right) and off flat jug a few moves higher. Great route. Jun 22, 2016

It's funny, I actually think Darshan makes this feel like 5.11+/12-. I'll round up, but this is possibly the mellowest 12b I've climbed. Oct 26, 2016
