4 out of 5 stars One-move crux

This route provides a reachy, precise crux at the bottom to fun back and forth sidepulls. Top's a breeze.

3 out of 5 stars Yertle the Turtle

Finally sent this on my 7th try. Took me longer than my other 12a's. I saw many different ways to do this route so if it's not working for you, maybe try different beta. My original beta was much less efficient than my current beta.

5 out of 5 stars Project...

This is a great 12a. The climb is slightly negative with a variety of different features from crimps, to slots, to a sloper, to a ledge. There is a lot of dancing with your feet. It is a beautiful climb worth doing.

4 out of 5 stars Classic and Consistant.

Consistant from top to bottom with a large blank section, creating a large crux reach to a good 2-finger slot. But accurancy is key, it's very thin-- so it's hard to be dynamic to it. Great Core-and-Feet move. Great for shorter climbers if you have the right beta!
