5 out of 5 stars First 12c redpoint!

Wuhu! My first 12c redpoint!

I would say there are two 12-ish cruxes on this route. Between bolts 3 and 4 is one that seems generally more difficult for shorter people, and the upper generally seems more difficult for taller people.

3 out of 5 stars ummmmm ok

not one of my favorites, but still kinda fun. I found the upper crimpy traverse to be the crux. 4 tries.

4 out of 5 stars Great route

Three distinct cruxes, bottom, middle, top. All with no hands rests before them. Despite that this is one of the better routes at the quarry in my opinion. 3rd try
