5 out of 5 stars big boulder problem

I broke a key hold off working it, it is harder now than it used to be, so fun and exciting!

Very enjoyable route, probably the best 5.12 I've been on in Southern Illinois (to date anyway). Solid climbing all the way through, with a pump that just won't go away. Can we say endurence?
