Huston's topo calls this 12c? Jun 26, 2009

I thought I remembered a comment or post calling it 13 as well somewhere on here. Maybe Schlick's comment under the main Qual Wall page? Anyone want to check it out later this summer when it cools down and we can come up with a consensus? This and a couple of the others that I need to get on too. Jun 26, 2009

I think I was told it was 13 as well. Aaron tried it on day and it looked hard to the point that I didn't try. Jun 27, 2009

Trying to pull through the first three bolts felt impossible. No evidence of broken holds either. Damn!

Run-out at the point it joins the other route. Mar 23, 2010
feels like 12c to me. did it in the humidity which sucked, but it was techy and reachy moves. Aug 22, 2010
There appears to be a sequence both left (no bottom shared holds) AND right (shares bottom holds w/right 12a route) of the bottom 4 bolts = 2 sequence options...
This may account for the lack of grade clarity? Nov 2, 2010

Nah, I think this route just sucks. Nov 2, 2010
I have seen the right variation go but not the left variation. Left variation = razor crimps on less than ideal rock quality.

Jason did the left hand line in February and felt that it was more difficult than its neighbor Secret Agent Man. It would be quite an accomplishment to send this variation in summer with less than ideal friction. I have to wonder if those climbing this in summer and calling it 12b and 12c are not wandering onto the right side variation. Dec 25, 2010
