5 out of 5 stars Wow!

12a, followed by a huge rest, then a 12a finish. Actually, I only did the 1st 6 bolts to the huge rest. A guy named Bob belayed me and we did laps on this thing. I've never been so sore in my life! There's a lot of variety (not just plain jugs)- and there's a cool hold a few bolts up- we called it a "mailbox" hold. Although I haven't done it, I was told the upper "roof" part requires using the other hand- not the one you'd expect on the jug, or turning almost backwards, or something. I can't remember exactly.

Two cruxy sections, with an easy slab bit in between. The fun part is up high and close to the finish. It has been many years since my ascent, but I remember making this weird traverse out right, getting a knee-scrim, and heading up. I thought that the grade was accurate contrary to what the other bloke has stated.
