Excellent. This starts in an obvious corner with laybacks and tension movements to a shake out above the dihedral section. The crux lurks around the long chain draw and pulls small crimps with smaller feet. A longer pull to a hold under the roof, then naviage the roof and finish in the in dihedral.
Trad climbers often find this to be an easier route.

This route has gotten harder due to holds breaking and being shot off by rednecks.


Located in the center of the wall.

I replaced the fixed 'biner on the long chain with a nice, new one. The current one was looking and feeling pretty manky. Incredible route, but way hard for the grade. Everyone knows Colorado grades are soft, but if this is 12d, then every 12d I've ever been on needs to be bumped down 2-3 letter grades...
