Description

This is a 35 or 40 foot extension. Like the other three cruxes on the lower section there is a no hands rest before you launch into the crux. I suggest you get it all back at the no hander. The crux is just a tad harder and a bit longer than the lower cruxes and you can blow it at the chains. The climbing involves some underclings in pockets, thin crimps, and route finding on just slightly overhanging rock.

Location

Semi Bluff starts just left of Rough Rider at a bolt that is on the right side of a blunt arete.

Protection

Bolts (5 more than Semi Bluff, John)

imo definitely as hard as Cresendo, maybe even stronger. The start and the end take some legit effort and technique. Really interesting features, for sure worth doing, but i just didn't enjoy it as much as the other 12s on this wall. It kind of felt like i was wrestling the route rather than flowing with it.
