Excruciating thin face moves up a steep face to a short crack then the anchors. Really thin and sustained.

3 out of 5 stars Painful and thin.

If you can make it to the first bolt without falling, you have a good shot at the rest of the route. Horrible thin micro edging with some big moves. Some of the crimps are obviously chipped or enhanced which makes it easier to see the route. The .12c rating I felt was a total sandbag, to be expected by a true Schultz route.
