5 out of 5 stars Awesome Line.

It took about 14 tries over different days. Got it on my last day of a 4 day trip. Didn't even warm up cause I thought I wouldn't get it. Just got on it to try to keep the moves fresh in my mind, then next thing you know I'm at the anchors. These are the moments why I love climbing. Many of the old ascents say easy for the grade but all new guide books and all the locals I've met still say .12d. After years, many of the sandstone holds have gotten smaller or have broken off on such a well traveled route. I'd give it a .12c/d at the very least. The trick, like everyone says, is to really wire the bottom .12a moves till the semi jug before the last clip about two-thirds up the climb. Then fire up to the last bolt and get the crux. Don't hesitate too long on the awkward crux position and just get it. Efficiency is key. Super classic. Every move is great.

5 out of 5 stars cool

I just need to do the lower section a little bit better, crux didn't seem that hard to me though.
