Description:

Just to the right of Choss Revolution. Routes join at eighth bolt. Easy 11 climbing to first crux before joining CR. Second crux leads to more jugs and anchors at 100'. Move out right to finish the climb with one more 12 move before easy climbing to the true anchors.

5 out of 5 stars First 12c lead

Very well bolted series with three obvious crux moves. First is a low 12 crimp at around 6th bolt to a nice jug, second is after route joins Choss Revolution (palm a small sloper before shooting right for crimp and immediately bumping left foot to a nice divot just before the bolt parallel to the crux move). Easy climbing to some low anchors and then a rather hairy clip and a dino (at least for me) to a fat flake that affords easy climbing to the top. 70M rope will work with weight stretch but just barely, so watch yourself. You can always lower to the 100' anchors and descend from there.
