Moderate climbing to a hard boulder problem. Its hard to get in the last two finger pocket if you have big fingers. This was the hardest 5.12 for me on the wall.

I removed the aluminum draw from the first bolt, message me with a description if you want it back. Please do not fix your own gear in Muir Valley. -Muir Valley Maintenence.
