A nice 12a or b starting from the jug flake at the first bolt, but minimal brushing has occurred thus far. Also the anchor still needs chain and quicklinks. The opening moves are V-heinous.

apparently "12a or b" was a gross understatement... my bad! it was fun to watch a good sport climber on this thing.

Thomas C put several hours into cleaning and brushing this thing up, so it would be cool to give him a little more time on it I reckon

understandable and good luck to him on both fronts. I had heard that it may be closed for him and just wanted to make sure before I hoped on it, and figured my asking in a public forum may benefit others as well and help prevent any confusion. You know, asking a question even though the answer was already known. Thanks for both your efforts and I look forward to getting on this thing as soon as he wraps it up.

Has cleaned up very nice- I'd say v6 to 12c with overall grade somewhere around 12+. Harder than the one to the left. This route starts with a very unique boulder problem to the big flake. Then sustained 12 ish climbing with good rests. Goes all the way to the top- great bolt placement Dustin

One of the bigger holds broke in the intro crux, but word is it still goes. I imagine it's significantly harder now.

It's about 12c or d if you tram to the big jug above the first bolt
