Description

This is the bolted line just left of 'Tailspin'.

Climb hard, bouldery moves to start, and continue with easier but pumpy moves to finish close to Tailspin.

Variation: (5.12c)
You can start on 'Tailspin' and traverse into 'Folsom Flute' at the first bolt. This is excellent.

  • I have not done the initial 5.13 boulder problem crux; however, the Variation is fantastic and well worth the effort.

Protection

10 or 11 bolts to chain anchors.

Per Spencer Anderson: the first bolt on the direct start is no good.

The 13c direct start should be maybe a 1 or 2 star route, simply because it's over (for a 13c climber) if you send the first 15 feet. Might as well just lower at the second bolt if you can get there.

The 12c (12b IMO) traversing in from the right, though, is excellent (3 or 4 stars), and worth doing.

It would probably be worth adding that in as its own route so people knew about it. Oct 22, 2017

No, nothing has broken as of last Tuesday. It's 12c, because you can practically lay down and take a nap before the crux. Jun 18, 2013
Did the top of this break? Seems way hard for 12c.

Edit: figured it out, so it seems seems reasonable. Jun 8, 2013
