5 out of 5 stars sweet route

love the approach towards the lower crux. Route continues to be sustained after the "mini roof". I would still give it a 12a but would not argue if 11d.

5 out of 5 stars Awesome!!! Flashed!!!

The crux with the knee-scum and cross is by far the most legit move at Gold Wall thus far. I would love to claim a 5.12a flash but think it's reallyonly 5.11d. Climbing is too mellow befor and after the crux.
