Starting the traverse after the first roof.

Description 

Shares a start with Veganator then branches left into steep territory. Lots of air. Originally rated 13a, Vince Bates claims he has found a 12b/c way to do the route, so I've applied that rating.

Location 

Right side of Bee Cave.

Protection 

Fixed draws.

I saw in the new Dry guide that this was downrated to .12b/c. I can't say I agree as it feels harder than Veganator (.12c to the top) and quite a bit harder than Spinal Twist (.12b). I've never done Oh Bee-have (.12b/c) so I can't really compare there. Maybe I was doing it really wrong???

Any insight here??

Luke, you'll have to ask VB. He claims to have found an inobvious hold. I haven't tried it with his beta yet, and his rating ability is suspect anyway.
