A bit of a big throw down low then a thin crux that was a right thumb-catch gaston for me.

Did you tighten it?

Tightened it the best I could with hands. No wrench to crank with though. Did make me think it wouldn't be a bad idea to start carrying a crescent wrench with my gear.

Great route, must-do 12a in this area

Amazing route - super fun. It has a number of longer moves, but they are still quite doable for shorties if you throw in some dynamic moves and/or intermediate thin sequences & high feet. The quality of the rock is absurd and the moves just flow very well. It's a cruxy 12a (3 harder section I see) but I don't think there is any real stopper moves among these, it's just solid 11+/12a sequences with pumpy stuffing in-between.

You get an amazing view at the top as a bonus.

Below is some beta so don't read if you don't want to know.

I'm 5'7", so for me the throw down low was really a dyno. It's an relatively easy dyno though, with a good ramp for the hands, lots of options for feet and a bomber jug to catch up above. I loved it - it gives characters to the route. Perhaps taller people can just reach with some sort of lock off.

Then I would say 2 other cruxes, both a little thin. The 2nd one for was bringing feet really high up after grabbing that sidepull directly above me - the first right foot up into a hand pocket is unconfortable and feel really precarious, but then when bringing up the left on the edge/crimp improves the position and you can reach for a good pocket from there.

The last crux is really around the last bolt (including clipping - it's hard after all the climbing below). I think I prefer to not clip it until I manage to get some sort of kneebar with a good hand, way to the left. At that point it's won.

Still need to link it though - too pumped to manage the last throw to the crimp above.
