Stick clip bolt 2 (and bolt 1 for the belayer) until you have this wired. Start standing on the boulder then up you go, traversing up and right on the ramp.

4 out of 5 stars i was happy with Bolt Happy :D

Fun problem that I worked out on the second go. The roof gave me a little trouble for the onsight run. Once I worked out the beta that worked for me, it was no problem. The whole climb can be worked out in 3 sections: 1) Off the deck (boulder), 2) up to the vertical face just below the small roof, and 3) the roof sequence to the bomber holds over the top above the chains. I won't beta spoil readers with how I worked out the top. It was fun and worked great when I discovered the sequence and style.

Easier than the usual Reimers 5.12a and on par with Crank although shorter. Likely 5.11c/d, but I'll stick with tradition and go with D.

4 out of 5 stars had fun even though I dogged all 6 bolts

Fun, as long as you choose the right path. Beta spoilers: Nice climbing on slopers and mixed hold types. Sort of dorky from the ground, this looks really cool looking down to see what you climbed. Two of us felt it's probably 12a, because of the 11c-ish campus start, no great rests, and the hard roof pull. But we worked the roof poorly so maybe it will go easer next time and I'll revise to 11d.
