Sequential climbing leads over the initial bulge. After a good rest at the 5th bolt work through bad holds and a tricky crux. A quick shake leads to a powerful deadpoint crux. A few remaining thin moves lead to a no hands rest. A few more bolts of 11+ climbing lead to the anchor.


Located just left of Megalomania. Two bolt lines right of Gypsy.


9 bolts to open shuts.

Just repeated this climb for the first time today. I remember thinking it was soft at the time of sending, but not I can confidently say I think it is more in line with 12c/d. Have definitely done 12c's that felt harder. Nov 9, 2015
