Description 

This obscure climb features a hard fingery crux that might feel quite hard for 12a if you're not use to big pulls off mono's.

Start up on easier ground with big moves between big holds for the first three bolts. After clipping the 4th bolt (nice to pre-hang this), make a long move off a sharp two finger pocket / sidepull to a deep left hand mono. Lock this off low and make a big move up to decent holds at the lip. Pull over the lip with bad footholds and reach the anchor.

Location 

Middle of Alcohol Wall. Just to the left of the large crack that splits the wall. Starts just right of a large Prickly Pear.

Protection 

4 Bolts to Anchors
