Don't fall at the third bolt. It won't be pleasant when you shins are cracked on the lip of the roof...

the headwall is a bit tricky. and this route has 6 bolts, not 5.

I thought this thing was pretty tricky. I climbed it to the right of the line and just left of the line at the bulge crux. I am not sure which one is easier.

I thought this was a bit trickier than 11b. Be very delicate after the roof. There is a juggy slot that could end badly if you try to move too quickly out of it.

Would be 4 or 5 stars if the dihedral continued all the way to the top.

Great climbing! One of of the coolest routes I've never heard anyone talk about. Really cool moves in the lower section
