3 out of 5 stars guarded this FA with Climb Tech technology

I applied for this line mainly to add a fun extension to Corsican Brothers. CB's low anchors are likely because Bird didn't like the looks of the clifftop arete. I checked all around it, seeing good support between the various crack lines.

The new lead route proved to have a lively crux and the pump remained through the finish, so it came out better than expected. Do it in pure spirit, ignoring the grade because the height dependency leaves the grade meaningless. But this database requires a grade. 5.11b-or-less-to-5.12a-or-more.

I sent it the first session after bolting but hadn't expected it to go down that fast. So instead of untrustworthy redtagging to guard the FA, I'd left several holes without bolts, came back, inserted Climb Tech removable bolts, and sent it.

Beta spoiler: high left foot, fight to reach obvious left finger sloper, bump it a little higher, deadpoint the obvious shelf.
