Description 

This climb has excellent moves at the top, and a surprisingly large number of jugs for a climb of this difficulty. The middle was a bit tough for me to figure out - seems harder than 12a unless you stray to holds that appear to be part of the adjacent climbs...but that might just be me. Totally worth it if you're up to the grade!

Location 

Smack in the middle of the main wall.

Protection 

Bolts.

I don't really think it was quite 5.12. I thought both the 5.12s on this wall were soft. Both fun, well protected and great for someone trying to break into the 5.12 range but both more like 11d in my opinion, not that it matters. I thought most the climbing I have done here in Puerto Rico was soft aside from one or two routes(in Rosario) that were surprisingly harder than I thought they would be based on the other routes of similar grades here but I suppose that can easily happen on an island where all the grades are based on the routes next to them. It certainly happens in some climbing areas on the mainland.

I agree with the grading being soft in some lines especially in monagas. Depends who bolted/graded it. If it was Rosano then it prob is a little soft. This one and the one next to it are, in my opinion, both 5.11d. Just like nate said, great lines to prepare for the 12 range. Great lines!
