The crux comes on last half of first pitch. I was terrified of the rusty bolts on this one.

I agree with 11c on the first pitch. Felt about the same as an 11c onsight I snatched on Arizona limestone. Mar 22, 2017

The badly corroded bolts were replaced with SS bolts in February 2014. 12a grade is for staying right over the bolts at the crux. Easier (11c) if you use the right hand edge of the face at this point (7th bolt). 10 bolts to anchor. Feb 4, 2017

All bolts have been replaced. Did the 1st pitch only (crux) but never felt it harder than 5.11c Jan 8, 2015
