3 out of 5 stars Stoutness

Very hard for the grade (at least two letter grades harder than cat's ass). Grade is probably closer to 5.12b/c than 12a. Stick clip the first bolt and jump start to the left hand crimp to begin the route. Opening sequence is technical V5 (with a sketchy clip thrown in) where you do about 7 hand movements in 5 feet to gain an awkward stance (I would hardly call it a rest). The awkward stance allows for another sketchy clip and yet another V4-ish boulder problem off of a very shallow left hand bi-doigt to pull above the third bolt and into the undercling/break. From there it eases up significantly (about 10d/11a) to the anchor. Expect your fingers to hurt.
