Description:

Find this climb at the far left (west) end of the cliffband, on a steep slab immediately right of a nasty-looking offwidth ("Redemption," 5.10d/11a trad). Short and hard: pull 6-8 balancy moves just off vertical, then easier terrain to the top.

Descent Options:

rap/lower off, or scramble down the chimney/gully on the right end of the anchor ledge

3 out of 5 stars ?

Definitely a tall boulder problem stylistically, but the guidebook said .12a and I'll take it.

3 out of 5 stars Baby's first 5.12

This is baby's first 5.12. It isn't too bad at all; it's really just a boulder problem, having less than 10 hard moves on it, and probably less than 20 total. Still a fun, balancy route with inobvious moves, and easy to TR by scrambling up the chimney on the right. Good clipping stances too.
