Reaching hidden hold around bulge makes this route hard to onsight.

Great route, but too short... wish it were longer! (But I guess that's true for most routes on this wall). With the beta I was using, I'd say for me, no harder than 12b. Maybe even 12a? Especially since there is a really good rest separating the opening tough moves from the upper tough moves. I could see how my beta would be more difficult for someone much shorter than me (I'm 5'11"). But there's probably beta that works for shorter folks, I didn't mess around trying to figure something else out though. Regardless, I think this route has some of the best moves on this wall!

I agree about the rating.. I'm definitely not climbing 5.13a... It's probably closer to 5.12a/b. Though onsighting this would be pretty badass due to the nature of the climb. Definetely give it a go if you're in the area.
