Shares same start as up for grabs. Break right after two bolts and tackle the small roof above.

Moderate climbing to a good rest at the roof. Then a 6 crimp/pocket v5 boulder problem with a tricky foot or two. It has some chipped holds, but it's still some pretty entertaining climbing.

Though it felt easy for 12a, but some beta was helpful. harder than up for grabs though so i guess 12a works.

Climbed it again a year later, and now the crux feels hard as nails!
