Goes up the black streaks. 2 long reaches/deadpoints/dynamic moves around the third clip. Easier after that.

5 out of 5 stars Super fun

bouldery, thought the flat jug would be an incut, but stuck it anyway. Was super pumped by the top.

4 out of 5 stars He's a talker...

Took me several tries, but I eventually bagged it. No doubt the crux moves were drilled... Also, it seemed stiff for the grade (especially when compared to other 12a's in the area..)

3 out of 5 stars Two moves

and your done. The first big move isn't bad for the right hand but you have to clip before making the second big move with the left hand. Make sure to press hard with the right foot to slap up with the left hand to sloping jug.
