awesome, awesome af climb. start with a boulder problem and stay right, make the 3ard and surf through jugs, till you come to a nice juggy rest with a bolt at eye level, make a throw right hand to a slopey arete. then move left on some more challenging holds.

Good variation of climbing. Best 12b in AF?

This route is a true test of endurance! And so far I'd have to agree with Ryan Stott.... Best 12b in AF?

I'm not sure about "the best," but definitely a must-do route in AF--bouldery start, juggy headwall and final pumper finish on some sloper pinches. You'll pump out on some of the biggest holds you've ever grabbed. Goes through some exceptionally good rock for American Fork, with the exception of the first three bolts.
