Begin with a double hands double heels on a slacktite. Move into a series of sidepulls using OK edges. The crux is moving off of two sloper at midway to an OK undercling, followed by a series of lockoff gastons. The climbing doesn't ease from there, as it remains extremely pumpy all the way to the anchors.

We keep finding kneebars on this rig. Two so far. We'll see if it affects the grade

What a fun route. It's hard to believe that an additional kneebar rest wouldn't affect the grade of thing, since a lot of the difficulty comes from the sustained nature of the route. I say we just call it 5.13 and savor the rad movement this climb offers.
