A great plated jug line just left of Breakfast Burrito. Nope, it's not a squeeze job. You just never noticed this gorgeous line. Like keeping a straight face this line becomes more difficult the higher you get. A gimme for some. Watch out for gigantic talking insects.

Great route thanks for putting it up Shadow

Cool climbing, destined to be another classic at this crag.

Killer moves and perfectly bolted, props Shadrock!

Good addition to the crag. Neighbors close by but not encroaching. Easier climbing leads to the crux guarding the chains. Good one to flash once your buddy works out the beta.
Savage said on October 15th, 2012
Very cool to get another good line at the crag. Nice work, Shadow. It seemed mostly solid, but a few spots where I think some stuff will break off. It will clean up perfect in time. Fun line!
Foster said on November 16th, 2012
Several possibilities exist for a rest around the last bolt. Hard to call this 12a with the rest beta. Felt more like 11d. Still it's a fun line and a good climb, thanks for bolting it!
Dhaulagiri said on November 26th, 2012
Either this is 11d or Primus Noctum is 12b
Spikeddem said on December 3rd, 2012
I think the stem rest that people are using does, in fact, make this a squeeze job :O
shadow.ayala said on March 24th, 2013
someone please downgrade this to .11c or 5.9+ or ANYTHING other than .12a so i dont have to listen to ego driven dumb asses spraying in my fucking face about how easy this climb is. please do this before i rip out the bolts and put a gun to my fucking head.
dustonian said on March 24th, 2013
Isn't putting up routes here FUN?? :)))
climb2core said on March 24th, 2013
Hence why 11c is the new 12a
chriss said on April 1st, 2013
Nice route! No hands knee bar left of the last bolt made the finish pretty mild.
Foster said on May 31st, 2013
Wasn't going to spray about the kneebar but that's the 'rest beta' I used. The stemming rest beta is for cheaters, barely 11c with that tactic

if it's not a squeeze job then it's contrived
twan said on October 20th, 2014
Got on it this weekend. Not sure why someone would need a knee bar or have to do whatever other "rest beta." All the holds are good resting holds especially at the last bolt. It is soft but I'm pretty sure that was mentioned by the guy that bolted it. Fun route..

Easy til it isn’t. Didn’t quite free it this time. Maybe next. Stemming at the top is off route IMO. But hey if you wanna climb it that way... it’s a free country, man.
Jacob said on February 7th, 2019
Just a matter of opinion I guess but I don't feel like this one is soft (assuming you stay on route). Granted I'm still breaking into the 12s, but I've never done moves on an 11 as hard as the upper moves here.
Anonymous said on February 8th, 2019
Agree to disagree. Just at Drive-Bob, I think there are harder moves (while carrying a pump anyways) on Head and Shoulders, Flush, and Velvet. Hell, the moves on Dustin's slab thing over to the left might be harder than the top of this one.
climb2core said on February 8th, 2019
Yes, there are much, much harder 11s. Scarlet, Poison S, Head & Shoulders (still haven't sent that), PBR Street Gang, etc. But I think Jacob needs to do more of the 11+/12- to get a feel for the grade.
shadow.ayala said on February 11th, 2019
I called this .12a knowing full well that this would be a lot of peoples first of the grade. It is pretty close to the grade, so I tossed new 5.12 climbers a bone. If you feel cheated by this climb, I recommend climbing Crimps and Bloods. Also graded .12a.
wildhanimal said on October 10th, 2019
Noticed this one is 11d in the new guidebook... officially downgraded?
Rx2Climb said on December 5th, 2020
Grades are a crazy thing. I thought the crux was harder than any moves on Hakuna or Check Ur Grip, but much easier than say Golden Road. The climbing before the crux is much easier than Hakuna or Check Ur Grip though. Soft 12a? Or solid 11d? Either seems right to me.

More like mid 11 in reality lol
