Description 

This is the bolted line just left of 'Tailspin'.

Climb hard, bouldery moves to start, and continue with easier but pumpy moves to finish close to Tailspin.

Variation: (5.12c)
You can start on 'Tailspin' and traverse into 'Folsom Flute' at the first bolt. This is excellent.

  • I have not done the initial 5.13 boulder problem crux; however, the Variation is fantastic and well worth the effort.

Protection 

10 or 11 bolts to chain anchors.

Per Spencer Anderson: the first bolt on the direct start is no good.

Did the top of this break? Seems way hard for 12c.

Edit: figured it out, so it seems seems reasonable.

No, nothing has broken as of last Tuesday. It's 12c, because you can practically lay down and take a nap before the crux.
