Another good one...don't forget the crux runout to the anchors that make this one worth while.

The route is no longer poorly protected.

maybe not, but it is still runout to the chains...this would be a tough onsite.

A little bit "sporty" to the chains, but no place to really stop and clip until you are pretty much there anyway. Fun route!

pigman, there are no onsites in the red, there is only getting lucky and grabbing the appropriate chalked up holds. if there were such a thing, however, then this would be my first of the grade woot woot!!! :-)

Someone told me that the crux is harder then before. Maybe a hole is broke ?

Run out makes you try just a bit harder. Really enjoyed this one.

Same grade with the supposed broken hold up top?

It felt solid at 12a but not harder. Not sure what broke? 5.11 climbing to a really good shake at the last bolt before heading into a the v4 crux.
