Start left of Shibumi...go up an easier corner to a bulge crux to a slab crux. It is thin -- hard for the grade.


16 quickdraws and a 60-meter rope.

What's with the lame description? This is actually a pretty good route.

Fun route, a couple of short cruxes with good rests in between.

Awesome pitch -- I thought this thing was 13a for sure. Harder than Beer Run.

"Serpentine" on the Anti-Phil Wall is a good warmup for this one. Tech-nasty stuff. The crux for me revolved around a thin crimp I had to hold onto forever while I moved my feet around just so, and there was a thin, committing deadpoint to reach a good edge near the anchors. Maybe it's 13a. I could also see how the original grade was 12c. Hard to rate these kind of routes.
