Description

This new line (2012) begins on NVPS, sharing its crux and first bolt then continuing straight up through five new bolts. Step right to finish on Stone Free anchor. The route requires intriguing body tension movement and an improbable thin crux up a steep wall. A bit harder and more sustained than neighboring Stone Free.

Six lead bolts, finish on Stone Free Anchor

Great new route and well bolted too!
One of the most pleasant 12s at The Bear in my opinion, and unlike some of the other 12s, the crux isn't right off the ground, which is nice.
Sustained and very homogenous, it doesn't ease up until the 5th bolt.

I found it surprisingly clean for such a recent route. I guess people have top-roped this line before it was bolted maybe? Apr 15, 2013
