cruxy start of fun stripe

Description 

Beautiful slightly over-hanging black stone with an orange water streak. The business is done after the 5th bolt then cruises up nice stone to the anchor. The book calls this 11+, but I felt it was more on the 12a side.

Location 

Furthest right route at the Ice Plant. Can't miss it.

Protection 

9 bolts?

Hard onsight, and might be an easier 12a.

Bottom section was tougher than I expected, but not too difficult once you have the beta. Find the pockets that work and keep moving upwards to the easier slab. Love that starting feature.

Probably just a super techy 11d, but I could see it as 12a, especially next to the one move wonder on the Barnum Route
