The climb begins on overhang terrain for the first 3 bolts followed by a crux on thin crimps (the k00kEEz) to get the 4th clip. More difficult face climbing follows until the angle eases off. This slabbier climbing leads to a final roof (and 2 more clips), with another crux (5.12) to the anchors. We originally rated this climb 13a, but with new Beta it seems to be settling in at solid 12d.
We used entirely stainless-steel half-inch bolts (some are 3.5" long, the others 4.75") and hangers.
