5 out of 5 stars Great free route... Must do the right 11+ variation... Great!

Tried this the last day of our trip cuz we needed something harder! This was it! The 2nd pitch 11+ was pretty balls hard for the grade and had only one fixed nut... a super nice corner that required some very technical stemming as well as some creative and runout sporty juggy/sidepulls. Took me two tries for that pitch and gave me the first fall of our trip. The 12a part, if you do the 11+ variation below is really short but packs a lot of pump in its 25ft tall length. fixed with nuts all the way through and was pretty sporty... figured out the moves and almost had it 2nd try and on the third try i was burnt out and worthless. A great pitch though and would be fun to link into the pitch above on a clean send. We bailed off feeling worked and not wanting to do the grovel above... although i do love bombay chimneys.

5 out of 5 stars Awesome route

One of the best hard alpine climbs I've done.
Aided the 12a portion of the 2nd pitch. Had to rest twice on the third pitch, but sent the fourth and fifth pitch. Highlight of the trip!
