Description 

This is probably the most climbed 12 at the Pet Wall. It's often called a good first 12b. It's probably not a soft 12b, but it's one that can be worked more easily than others because it gets easier as the sequences are learned.

Two really solid cruxes are joined by sustained climbing and a slightly slopey finish make this a very fun outing.

Location 

This is the leftmost climb on the upper tier of the Pet wall. From the rock outcrop that overlooks the lower tier, scramble down to the stump against the base of the wall and step left off the stump to start. Be careful, the first move is a bit balancey.

Protection 

6 bolts plus two bolt anchor

I actually think this is a classic line. It's a little bit shorter than some of the other routes to the left but the moves are quite cool and it flows really well. Probably a little soft for the grade (12a/b?) given other graded climbs at the crag but a classic none the less. A route like this at most other crags would have a ton of traffic.

Very fun climb. Really nice movement and great clipping positions. Very workable and definitely gets easier as the sequences are learned.
