5 out of 5 stars Classic Route at NS(first 5.12c flash for me)

Great beta per Jesse. This route has a bouldery start that stays on you until reaching a jug which offers a chance to recover. The climbing eases off a bit to the anchors from here on out. I'd say this route is bouldery, not as sustained compared to Learning to Crawl and has a similar rating as Astro Zombie. The movements and holds are very memorable, I'd rate this climb highly.

5 out of 5 stars Soft 12c

About the same difficulty as Astro Zombie which is low in the grade. Very fun route though, one of my favorites at North Shore. I blew the onsight but was able to give Brian Lee some valuable beta and he pulled out the flash! Sent 3rd go.

5 out of 5 stars Awesome Project

Projecting this at the moment. Down to 1 hang. A hold popped (not the one you're thinking of) near the bottom of the route.

Crux area has a right hand hold that is a bit delicate, it flexes a bit.

I'm inclined to think this is a 12c however I don't have any reference because I've never done one outdoors.
