Climb up to a low roof which starts the cruxy section. The 12b/c crux is moving past the 4th bolt and clipping the 5th. The climbing eases until 2 bolts below the anchors where a last push of power and sequence is required.


Route is right of Tagger and left of Burly Boogie


14 bolts to open shuts

Got on it for the first time yesterday. Was looking for a new 12c proj after finishing up "Hanging By a Thread" in just 3 tries.

This route is of excellent quality. If it was in the roof area it would be a classic and much cleaner. As is, its not loose but has a lot of dirt on it and the holds needed a good brushing.

The crux move is definitely harder than "Hanging By a Thread". There are probably more easy sections on this climb (its less sustained), but the climbing at the top is tenuous and a bit heady. Would not want to take a fall trying to make the moves to clip the anchor, as you'd fall out of the corner on an angle.

FYI - I noticed that the big jug at the top of the arete climbing, just above the last bolt was flexing a lot. On the lower-off, I pried it loose without much effort and trundled it. The climbing might be a little harder now since the good left foot you use to clip the anchors is gone...sorry.
