Al Cap outcrop, and the No Equity route 5.12.
This middle of three lines ascends on a system of very fingery and small edges and corners. Since it pushed me off immediately, I set up the top rope to work out the beta. The climbing reminded me of a more vertical Twitch, but with even smaller holds and some perplexing body position. For an over grown boulder problem, it seemed very continuous for all of its 35 feet. Bullet-proof stone, complex sequences, reasonable pro, very fingery. Nice job by BH.
Four draws and a rope. Now has double bolt anchor at the top.

My first impression of this neat little problem suggested a very hard route. In re-running it, however, I made a series of zig-zags across the face and this limits the difficulty to about 12a with several 11c sequences. This is really an excellent problem that packs a lot of climbing into its 35 feet. The rock quality is perfect throughout.
