This is a beautiful line with some tricky moves. The half of the route is pretty simple, but the fun part comes at the overhang. It feels really pumpy the first few attempts but once you figure out the technique and the hand placements, the route opens right up. The hardest part is getting over the overhang, due to the severe lacking of foot placements. But once you make it over the hump, the rest of the route feels like a cakewalk.

I highly recommend giving this one a shot.

Good route, except for the sandy first 20 feet. Hard, but definitely not 12b. Felt like maybe 11d. Second try

2nd try. Really fun route, big moves to good holds. Felt like Talking with God but rather than one tough move pulling the roof, it has more pumpy moves and with a longer steep section.
