Description:

(from the falcon guide, 1st ed.) *** Tricky and fun, but watch for wasps in the undercling. Start 3 ft. left of "Cooler crack" and try to follow a line of bolts to a set of open hooks at the top, just below the birch tree. (per 2nd edition Falcon Guide) 5.12a if you climb within the bolt line 5.11c if you duck out right to the HUGE ledge near the crack (between 1st & 2nd bolts)

4 out of 5 stars Stayed to the bolt line...

... as the guidbook states, it is 5.12a if you climb the bolt line rather than ducking out right to the HUGE ledge by the crack.

Got it on my second try. Like every other route here, its like 5.7 after the big ledge. For the record, I've never seen a single wasp anywhere near this route. Another excellent 5.11c
