Description 

This is the new mixed route on the 5.12 wall at Middle. A worthy addition that features similar climbing to the other routes but with a slightly different flavor. Bill called it the "smallest and sharpest" crimps on the wall. On the 2nd ascent, I "bypassed" those holds using a very long deadpoint/toss. While still hard, I personally think the cruxy business is friendlier on the tips than others on the wall and very fun.

Location 

Between App Spring and Hard Rock Cafe.

Protection 

4 bolts and 2 blue TCUs is what I used. Could use slightly larger cams if you want. Bolted anchor.

What's up with the position of bolts 1 and 2? The bouldery moves through the initial section almost mandate a stick clip, and bolt 2 is placed so high that while you're climbing on razor blades, you can't clip it until you're going to deck because you're so far above bolt 1. Since you pretty much have to stick clip anyway, bolt 1 could really have been placed a couple feet higher if the plan was to put bolt 2 so high.

Just my two cents, but since I assume this was rap-bolted, these could have been positioned a bit better.
