Great route. Thin finger crack to pinches/pods/and crimps. Bolts get spaced at the top which increases the fun-factor. 12.d harder on humid days.

5 out of 5 stars Paradigm Shift

Very fun route, so far the best I have climbed at RW. Got it on my 3rd try, surprisingly. Which makes me question the rating. The "crux" wasn't that bad either, I found two "decent" holds to get through it. Many people seem to be calling it a .13a, but it didn't feel quite that hard. A bit runout sometimes, but its not that bad.
