DescriptionThis one got in my head and kept me going for a lot longer than the others. Turns out my .12b project is probably more like .12c? Tyler Phillips patiently taught me how to drill a steep line on lead. Holy cow it was spooky. As we worked it, some key holds broke making us move some bolts and change the line quite a bit.
Climb 3 bolts of easy terrain then the super steep crack. Climbing from the bottom to the first of the upper bolts feels around .11b for you tradsters out there. Once you clip the first of the upper bolts, its game on, with cool slopers, pinches and crimps. Save some juice for the last mantle, which is way easier if you're short. This mantle is also way easier when you finally find the jugs. The ones right by your face. On you're like 30th go. I've never had my large ass more over the lip of a mantle and still fallen. Believe me, the fall is safe.
