5 out of 5 stars oh boy its a good one

this is good, i mean really good and could only be better if it was longer...although a solid 35m is a good length (a 70m rope barely gets you down, and I mean barely)

beautiful, beautiful. Like Pente, but better, this is one of the all time best EVER!

No way it's a .12a, though. Even 11+ is soft.

The best crack route I have done so far. Splitter hands and thin hands leads to a 15 foot section of desparate ring locks. Then another 20 feet or so of fingers in a corner, a wild traverse to another crack, and then overhanging hands to the anchors. A Steve Hong mega-classic.
