Stellar climb!

The route starts about two bolts below the ground. I was told that this was pretty easy climbing, in comparison to the bulk of the moves. The original grade is maintained after the rock fall due to the slab rest at the start of the route. From here, it is an endurance battle through the roof and onto the face until one reaches the next slab, where one gets a full recovery rest. 3 final mini cruxes guard the anchors. While none are harder than V3, they are not immediately obvious and tricky enough for one to blow it.

For some reason, it is not uncommon to see folks get shut down on the initial slab section

I know more people that regard this as 13a than I do who call it 12d, although one guy sand bagged me calling it 12c.
