DescriptionAn eye catching line with intricate moves, perfect rock, and multiple cruxes that get progressively harder. Besides a few roof sections, this route is not terribly steep. However, it is extremely pumpy.
Start up a corner on poor sidepulls to a tricky move over a roof to a jug. Move right on angular holds, and make a tough undercling move over the huge roof to a massive jug. Hop to the horizontal crack and take a break before tackling the next boulder problem.
Power past flat sidepulls and crimps to a slightly worse rest at set of large edges. Pinch the large, glassy sidepulls, build your feet, and go big for a decent edge. Try to get a little back, then fight past a final section of half-pad sidepulls and polished foot smears to the anchors.
Felt more like 13a, but the online guide suggests 12d.
