Description

Fantastic route if in the area, one the best and obscure .12s in the city! Start up large flared crack that leads to easy slab with nice stances. Get a good look up at the headwall and crank some incredible moves through small holds to god send jug at the top. Rumor has it that a key hold broke off rendering the crux (3-5 bolt)harder.

Location

Located immediate left line of Checkered Demon(namesake route), obvious bolt line that charts its way up red patina face on headwall. Start in left wide crack and traverse into slab until first bolt.

Protection

bolts. bolted anchors with chains

seems to come down to one move. its a big move to a good hold, the problem is the holds you are moving off of and the lack of feet. from there surf up a cool rail to a hero jug finish. much more difficult for the shorter folks Mar 21, 2016

A friend and I tried this earlier this year. It felt significantly harder and much less enjoyable than Take a Hike. Oct 21, 2015

Dave, I worked this route off and on for a little while and came within one fall each time. that being said the hardest ive ever redpointed a sport route is 12c so Im probably not the best at grading. I am unsure if anyone has redpointed it. It is all there though, given the hard/techy crux on the headwall felt around v5/v6, perhaps it is more challenging than 12b. Would like to hear what you and others thought. Its a fun route regardless, especially for a challenge if one is not up for jumping on .13's. Aug 20, 2015
We got on this on TR and could barely winch thru the moves.12b?? Has anyone redpointed this? Aug 13, 2015
