4 out of 5 stars Hard ending

Probably no individual move on this route harder than 12a, but it's sustained and of course the crux is right at the end. Definitely it's one of the harder 12c's in the park but it's endurance based, so if you're not into bouldering you might find this easier than something like "Grinch". Personally I feel like it's a cooler line than Jade, although the groveling to get onto the face sort of detracts from it a bit. Wish it had some permadraws so that cleaning wouldn't be such a pain. Try and get someone to follow if you can, otherwise, downclimb!

3 out of 5 stars .

The only hard move is at the end and it's just cutty on a finger.
