I'm not sure how to grade this. First, start is strange and be careful to lift your feet to not hit the pedestal that you just built. Then pull the very beta specific and really hard moves through the roof. Then do the sloppiest and not very flowy 5.11, more like 11+/12- to the anchors. Not a very good climb and feels like people have given up on it!
