Really nice. Sequency 11c climbing up to 4th bolt. Powerful boulder to pass 4th bolt (couple different ways how to do it), then pumpy 10.d finish.

I am curious, when it was initially put up and rated, was there glue/bird crap (I can't tell which it is) on the two crimpers at the crux? The two most logical holds are virtually unusable at 5.12 level because the deposits make the holds smaller and slick. There is an alternate, reachy sequence, going up and right of the two holds to a crimper. I would guess the sequence is about V6 which is hard to do once you are worked from the lower section.

Beware: there is quite a bit of rust on the lower bolts. Don't know what that means in terms of safety and bolt integrity. The crux bolt looks good. It looks like it has been replaced recently - there is an old, rusty bolt stump a few inches below it.
