Projecting the Crockett

Description 

Fantastic route on beautiful white limestone. Starts with some long pulls on jug pockets to a moderate rest at a jug ledge. Move into the hard crux using a ridiculous, shouldery two finger gaston and a mono, hang on through a few more hard moves on edges and pockets up to the ledge, and finish with easier climbing including an engaging and juggy stroll to the chains. Hardest route in Myanmar (at the time it was sent). Make sure to warm up your tendons. And if you send it, make sure to comment your opinion on the grade.

Location 

2nd from the right on The Alamo, number 6 on the Alamo Wall Right Topo photo.

Protection 

7 bolts to 2 bolt anchor with rings. All bolts are stainless steel glue-in wave bolts installed 8/21/16.

Finally put this thing down after a crux hold broke and I found some new, awesomer, and perhaps slightly easier beta. It's likely the hardest thing I've climbed, and tentatively grading it at 5.13a, but with limited experience at that grade, I'm looking forward to other opinions and establishing a consensus grade.
