Nice route. Really long moves on small edges with a few good rests here and there. I was a bit confused about the different endings. If I understand correctly, straight up is 13+, if you veer right at second to last bolt and end at Borderline it's 12d, and if from Borderline's anchor you follow the lip of the wall back left to direct finish anchors it's 13a.
