Description 

Awesome cave climbing for the 5.11 climber !! The crux is near the top, but there's no place to rest.

The swing away from the wall after unclipping your first draw on the way down (way high over easy climbing) is almost as fun as the climbing !

This route now has permadraws for the last 6ish bolts. You'll need draws for the bolts you can see (I think 6-8). The pump factor plus technical crux at the end made this feel 12a, probably even harder if you are on the shorter side (under 5.6).
