Description

Polipitis is a wonderful and highly exciting disease characterized by the obsessive need to switch between pulling up on out-of-sequence, numbingly small pockets to making backflip monkey moves on overhanging tufas.

Jump on this line and you too will be pleasantly infected.

OK, to be fair, this is PROBABLY only three stars for all the discontinuity. But it's still a damn fine line—especially if'n 12a is your limit grade.

As for that, it's probably also at best a gateway 12. More likely a cruxy 11d. Again, just to be fair. So don't send this one and go spraying all your mates about how you're now a "12" climber. You still got work to do, buddy.

Location

The very left arete/edge of the upper Iliada Right cave. Scramble way up 'n' left onto the cave ledge to belay.

Protection

About a dozen draws. A good Transmogrifier to go from wall technician to gorri-zilla.
