This should be a comment on Divination, but we'll highlight it as its own route. 3 bolt direct entrance to Divination, climbing out of the creek 8 meters right of Autumn, discarding the long, uninteresting traverse in from the right. The delicate moves bump the grade of Divination up to .12a we figure. Hope you enjoy it!


13 bolts on the first pitch (3 added to original line).

Did this pitch today, thin and technical past the first three bolts; truly a stellar pitch, three stars.

Did this route by accident, was a little baffled at first that everybody thought the roof sections were cruxy given the much pumpier and more sustained climbing down low - now I know the full story. Thanks for the direct start, it adds quality to an already excellent route.

Fun route with sustained climbing. Going up the face to the left of the bolt line is contrived considering there is a good slanting rail to the right feeding into a handcrack. Felt 11b for an onsight warmup and the difficulty felt about the same as the upper section. What is the deal with trying to force lines away from the natural features of the wall to make them artificially more sustained/difficult? Going up and left after the third bolt would be an eliminate rather than the standard way of climbing the route.
