Karsyn Ansari high on "Patsy" 5.12b

Description 

The crux comes high on this route. This one is for sure a softer 12b with mostly .10 climbing. It might be the 'easiest' 12 on the wall. There's a few sporty moves here and there, and the crux is very entertaining, most of the route is not very memorable. Still worthwhile.

Surprisingly, this route makes a decent warmup given all the jugs through the start.

Location 

To the left of Soul Crusher

Protection 

Bolts and chains with fixed biners.

I really liked this route. The bottom is a delicate, technical slab, a nice variety for the wall. After the sit down rest, bust out lots of moderately hard moves to get to some technical moves by the little roof. Worth getting on if you like technical moves and not just pumpy jug hauls.

Really good route. The bottom dihedral is nothing to write home about, but the upper head wall is awesome!! Not sure about this being a good warm up as mentioned in the description. Just getting off the ground is really thin and tweaky, then there's a few bigger holds, but the upper head wall is lots of crimping, with some really devious sequences thrown in.
