|fun, but there is about a dozen drilled pockets on this one...|

|I dont know about the drilled pockets.... The climb is great, but I would not call the top 12-. Its 11b at the hardest... if even. After you pull the lip, you climb jugs the whole way to the anchors... with kneebar rests and heelhooks to get it all back. If you get to the lip you won't fall.|

|A right-hand jug broke off at the crux creating a more difficult and technical crux sequence. Could possibly change the grade?|

The headwall is every bit of 5.12. You most certainly can pump out after pulling the lip... I know from experience.
Despite the multiple drilled/enhanced pockets, this along with Pump-o-Rama at Rifle is one of the great 13-minus endurance testpieces. With the broken hold, this thing could warrant an upgrade... its definitely harder than it was before.
