5 out of 5 stars I am glad

everyone else thinks this is a bit more than 12a. That one bit is friggin ridiculous unless you have carnie hands. The 5.8 hero handcrack following the crux is a cool reward. The start seemed PG13 to me although I didn't lead it, I feel like I would be a bit nervous.

3 out of 5 stars It's about time!

One of the hardest stretches of climbing I've encountered on 5.12.

4 out of 5 stars Fun

Hard, especially with Swifts darting out of the crack while one climbs.
