2 out of 5 stars Low Crux

Super easy 12a. The low move feels like V3 at most when done right. You can make it overly tough by skipping the good holds though.

3 out of 5 stars ashamed...

the crux move at the start was easy. the boneheaded slip off a 5.7 move above the roof was just shameful. tried to come back later that day to do it clean and a group was camped out under it so i guess it will have to wait....
