4 out of 5 stars One-move crux

This route provides a reachy, precise crux at the bottom to fun back and forth sidepulls. Top's a breeze.

3 out of 5 stars Yertle the Turtle

Finally sent this on my 7th try. Took me longer than my other 12a's. I saw many different ways to do this route so if it's not working for you, maybe try different beta. My original beta was much less efficient than my current beta.
