Description 

This may be closer to .12-

Begin the climb moving up and then right along a hand and then fingery crack to awkward moves to the first clip or straight up past the crack on good but harder moves for a better full value to clip 1.

Crimp and finesse your way up on smaller fingery holds with some tricky hard feet to a stance at clip 4.

Move slighty left and then up on a fairly good up-ward right trending rail to a few cruxy and then really reachy holds to a rest stance near clip 6.

Go pretty much straight up on good holds but the climbing may be a bit taxing after your previous run.

A final crux before the anchors awaits you.

Location 

It is the left route on the main wall.

Protection 

12 clips to anchors.

Sustained! Should clean up nicely. Felt like 12b on the onsight attempt and may well be. If you figure out the trick to the anchor, it feels like the most brilliant 5.9 climbing ever!
