Seriously though, if there is a 5.12a in Spearfish Canyon that does not deserve four or five stars, this would be it. However, I am here to be a cheerleader, not a critic.
The only reason I'm not too down with this route is due to the fact that it handed me my ass and the falls I took caused me to slam painfully into the rock. This climb is not only physically demanding, it is also very beta intensive, and believe me, the first go more than likely won't be a fun time.
However, the eternal optimist in me wants everyone to know that it's a great route to project (if you like punishment), I'm sure it will make you strong and I'm quite certain things might go better for you if you head to the blonde rock to the left of the bolts instead of trying to follow the bolt line like I did.
However, with that said, please be advised that this is truely a 5.12a for 5.12+ climbers and the rides on this thing can get pretty fat and ugly...just like chicks the Incubus apparantly goes for. But then again, that's just a mean thing to say.
