3 out of 5 stars Tough

Hardest 12c that I've done. Harder moves than Learning to Crawl though not as sustained. Far more difficult than Spanish Fly in every way, easier moves than Grinch but much longer so more endurance is required. This route has a solid V4 boulder problem from ground till your feet are established on the headwall. From there it's probably 11a or 11b to the finish. Some decently difficult crimping at the end means that this route isn't over after finishing the bottom boulder problem. Good route but not my favorite.
