3 out of 5 stars tough crux

Had a tough time with the crux - but its pretty reachy (and complex) and I'm short. Finally succeeded with some tricky footwork. Oh, and I got somebody's bail-biner - but hey, I feel like I earned it - not giving it back :)

So I hear this route is getting upgraded to a 12a in the new guidebook. That seems reasonable - the crux seemed darn hard to me.

0 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

One of the coolest crux sequences I have done at the Quarry. Don't underestimate the finishing moves either. They take some thought.
