Description 

This route goes up the center of the steep north face of the gallstone.
Scramble up the right edge of the belay slab/boulder to a high first bolt shared with Seizure (a stick clip would be handy). Meningitis goes straight up while Seizure breaks off right. 4 bolts to anchors up and right--easy runout to anchors. The bolt line to the left is Toxic Shock 12c.

If you like crimps and gastons, you'll probably like this route. Short but sustained.

This thing is sequential! The holds are there and pretty good, but there are sooooooo many things that look like they could be holds. Tough one to onsight, I'd say.

If you think you climb 12a, this route dares you to show your face.

By far the most sandbagged 5.12a I've ever climbed.
