Fun, sustained climbing on steep golden-brown rock. Slopey edges and crimpers lead you to a distinct crux half way up.

The crux on this one involves a hard reachy undercling move with bad feet to get to slopey arete sidepull action. Then you reach jugs and you can breathe easy to the top. A bunch of fairly hard bouldery moves made this one feel a bit harder than depth. May 8, 2012

Great Route. Bouldery start topped with powerful moves through the undercling. Feels harder than other 12a on same wall. Quality route!!! Jun 29, 2012

Hard and a bit out of character for the area with a couple sections of absolutely miserable feet (slab). I thought the crux was below the undercling section, a big deadpoint to a decent hold from a shitty crimp and bad feet. The moves are great the whole way, the line feels significantly harder than DOF or pitbulls... Apr 15, 2014
I thought that this was significantly harder than any other 5.12a on this wall. Felt more like .12b, with a lower crux on thin crimps and an upper crux between bolt 4-5. Great route! Sep 23, 2015

Updated the grade. That right hand crimp on the lower crux used to be bigger and fairly positive. It broke and got smaller within a couple years after the FA. I still think this line is easier to redpoint than its neighbor The Benefactor. Sep 26, 2015

Agree with the upgrade. This route was always stout at 12a. For me, Benefactor is easier. Feb 5, 2016
