Description 

Very sustained, intricate, and beautiful route. It gets 12b in the guidebook, but I think that even the solid 5.12 grade will challenge leaders at that level. Definitely height dependent with a final redpoint-crux pop at the very top. This is right up there with Pudd's and Slash'n'Burn as one of the NRG's very best hard face climbs.

Location 

Just to the right, and sharing the same first bolt of Porter For Recorder.

Protection 

7 bolts.
