5 out of 5 stars Excellent Route

This was my first 5.12c and managed to send in 1 session. This route may feel a bit easier for shorter climbers like myself(5'5") if one can take advantage of a perched, scrunchy position to take significant weight off of their arms nearing the end of the crux sequence.

5 out of 5 stars Great Route

One of the best at North Shore for certain. That Mossy wall corner just produces so many good climbs! I felt that this route was more on the soft side of 12c, but not drastically so. Took me 2 tries last Sunday, and then two this Sunday for a total of 4 goes to send. The crux is quite beta intense, but once you figure out all the unique little foot movements and get the right sequence it gets easier. Great lead route too, the falls are all super clean!

5 out of 5 stars Astro Zombie

What a fun route! Pretty stout crux that may be less awkward if you are short and small with a negative ape index like me.

Route has a great mixture of holds and movement.

4 bolts, definitely bring a stick clip for bolt 1. Route starts up on a ledge.
