  • Description 

    82 Crag's version of Venus on a Halfshell, only better. This is a long enduro crimp route. Lots similarly-hard moves throughout and very sustained. Crux is more of a pump crux than a boulder problem. The crimps just keep coming and coming and they get particularly thin between the last two bolts. Enjoy!

    Location 

    First route on the cliff that is right there when you top out the 5.4 intro choss pile. Has kind of a hanging-ish belay anchor. At one point I believe it was the farthest route to the right but it's now just left of Team America.

    Another 12d variation called Police State links the bottom of Encryption with the top half of Team America.
