Description 

Big Tuna [5.12d] links Hot Tuna [5.12a] with Motion in the Ocean [5.12d].
Climb Hot Tuna and clip the anchors (both bolts) continue on mini crimps with technical foot stemming. Head right at the roof, traversing the hidden holds underneath the large run-out overhang. Perform a miraculous dynamic lunging knee-bar to a solid rest and a much-deserved bolt. Continue on Motion with more stemming and a 5.12c bulge. Finish on Motion in the Ocean anchors.
