This is a cool climb, and more solid for the grade compared to some of the other 12a's at this wall. Start by climbing Pilgrimage, 5.12a to the second bolt. Don't clip the second bolt on Pilgrimage and continue up the dihedral to the right. Clipping the bolt near the top of the dihedral begins As the Jerks Fly. From here, it's straight up on some marginal holds (crux). Continue straight up gaining a few pods and finger locks in a vertical crack. Increasingly better holds lead to the chains. The second bolt is a bit high, you can clip the 2nd bolt on Pilgrimage with a long runner, or unclip your draw when you reach the first bolt on As the Jerks Fly.


Start by climbing Pilgrimage, below of shallow right facing dihedral.


7 bolts, chains.

This climb is really fun. There are some cool sequences that then lead to positive holds so you can rest a bit.
