Begin just right of Charlie on the large boulder. Johnathan's excellent description of the moves follows: "After some easy initial climbing, the route fires directly into a very serious boulder problem on thin, very sharp edges, finishing with a wild, all-points-off sideways dyno to a resting jug. From here the route carries on with difficult lock-offs on crimps and pockets to surprisingly frequent, albeit worsening rests. Towards the top lies the a longest section of uninterrupted hard climbing that finishes with a reachy, shouldery lock-off (redpoint crux). There is a solid rest at the final bolt before you climb a series of pockets and long moves guarding the chains." If that's not enough beta for you then search for the many videos on the tubes.

has this thing been done or not? 'grade unknown' doesn't really tell me. Maybe say 'project' if its a project and 'grade unknown' if its been done but the grade is unknown because its super old or obscure... naming it also makes it a bit more confusing

I was watching a guy work the route on 9/22/2012 while I was climbing some other routes nearby and he broke a hold between the last bolt and the anchors. He took a nasty whipper and flipped upside down, he said "It was one of the good holds."

hmmm... flashed a few times? perhaps the original grade was "purely imagined."
