Description:

A short roof section leads to a mid-height crux. After this it gets easier the closer you get to the anchors. Given 12d in the guide, but most people think it's easier.

This thing is too much fun! could def. work out the roof beta a little better, but it still worked for me. steep, pumpy, and really varied. Loved it! 5th try overall, should have been four but i warmed up on it once...dumb

4 out of 5 stars Very, very fun!

Being shown the post-roof rest was key.

Great route. Pumped out of my head. Got it 2nd try. Locals claim a rating of 12c due to scrubed off apoxy.
