Located on the intimidating steep grey wall this line is one of the best of the grade. You will rarely find a route this long and this steep with holds so big your fingers disappear when you grab them. The fun comes with an entry fee though consisting of a tough boulder problem followed by a slightly technical face climb. If you make it past that channel your inner Tarzan and let the swinging begin.

Super route, five star for sure. Feel more like 12b for me.

"Tough boulder problem" ?? The start is probably no harder than V1-2 with decent beta, not worth mentioning for a 5.12a/b. The pump near the top is what got me.

As Cromper would say, great rock climb!

probably a little more difficult now - i broke one of the bigger holds in the undercling/flake feature near the last bolt a few weekends back. PHENOMENAL route.
