Description:

Not too sure but this is a one move wonder (maybe three moves) to the left of the Marks Moderate. The crux is above the second bolt and has a powerful undercling with a big move to good holds. Beyond this is easy climbing to the anchors.

4 out of 5 stars I'll be back for the red point

TRd after climbing lower arete. Tried direct start but was too much for my abiliites. Then I approached from the arete at some jugs close to the first bolt. I was sustained but fun.

4 out of 5 stars Classic

Did this by using the big jug above the first clip on the arÍte then down-climbing and traversing to the left to the second bolt. I've done this route twice, first time I exited left of the 3rd bolt using the good right hand pinch and pretty much joining the finish of Swallow My Pride. The second time I finished the route by staying true to the bolt line. I exited directly above the 3rd bolt avoiding going left to Swallow My Pride and used a thin not too obvious right-hand undercling slightly left of the 3rd bolt and did a big left-hand throw directly above the same clip. Felt this finishing variation was a lot harder and feel comfortable calling it 12a. I think the direct start, Kill Uncle with the latter finish would definitely be 12c and probably the hardest climb at the crag.

4 out of 5 stars excellent rock

I started using this as part of my workout. A good route, hard feet, good hands. I approach after at second bolt. If one approaches at the first bolt it is probably 12 A
