Katch in her element

Description 

An amazing pitch. A crux down low in some sharper rock leads you to a stance below a beautiful headwall of sculpted edges and ledges. Maybe it's 13a? What do you think? A must do.

Protection 

Many QDs, 80meter rope

I would give a vote for low 13a for this one. Mainly because I found the moves through the crux to be a tad long (I am 5'1"). Maybe I just needed to get my feet higher...
I could see 12d though.

Also, using mid-anchors, a 70m rope works. I tried to get to the ground with my 70M and was about 20ft up...
