A 5.13a slab line? It probably doesn't need a description because nobody else will climb it. It's the blank one with no holds. Looks killer though.

Full disclosure. Sent this route using a flying start... One hand on the starting hold, one foot on the ground, one foot on the ground, and the other hand on nothing. I jumped off the ground and foot hold to a high crimp and sent. I probably bypassed the hardest moves, but maybe not. Didn't feel 5.13, maybe low 12 with this beta. I know I am tall but I am sure shorter people could do it this way as I could get way higher than the hold I went to if needed. Also the upper bolts are really close to the easy jugs by the crack.

i think it took brad at least 6-8 goes to send this and he has on sighted appalachian spring, so I let him grade it.

I am not saying its not 5.13, but in my brave and humble personal grade for the beta I used... it did not feel 5.13.
