Nice pockets and features at the bottom lead to a blank middle section crux where tiny crimps and good balance are needed to get further up the wall.

The middle slab has spit off just about everybody. No FA yet as far as I know.

Crux doesn't feel easier than V5. The climb was damp and I'm weak as a kitten, but I could not do the crux moves. Scrubbed some intermediate slimpers, but I don't think I could do it without quite a bit of hang board training and a cold fall day. Cool climb, hard moves - still needs FA, I believe.

Sent this today. Not sure if it has seen an FA yet. Better conditions than what my buddy who posted above experienced, but still not the best so it's hard to grade it. Definitely not 10+. Felt 12a? Great route and thanls for bolting it!

Nice to hear you got it. I believe it's FA. Feel free to name it. Thanks for the post and your welcome since I bolted it. Glad you enjoyed it. I figured the 3rd clip would be rough, not much feet there!

Thanks Jim! Great line and perfect bolt placements. "Kept to Memory" 12a. You can change the name to whatever since you bolted it.
