BETA PHOTO: Having tons of fun on this overhung jug haul!

Description 

Step up off the ground and pull some fun moves trending a bit left. It becomes apparent quickly what kind of climbing you'll be doing...steep, continuous pulling on mostly good pockets as you fight the pump towards the top. An obvious crux comes about 2/3rds the way up as the holds lessen in jugability. Some less-than-obvious holds help here. Climb better holds to the finish.

Location 

Just left of The Unbearable Lightness of Being starting between the large boulder and the cliff. When lowering, you'll end up on this boulder.

Protection 

7 bolts to chains.

I liked this route; it stays pumpy all the way to the end, well past the crux. Quite a fight and no big rest before the anchors, unlike its 11c neighbor to the right.
