12b if you start way to the left and traverse in

Original start 5.12c. -this means that either another route in this guide should be created, or just change the rating on the route-the route is 12c the way its meant to be done

you are right and i apologize, i did the left start

I never understood why anyone would traverse in to the first bolt when there are humungoid jugs right beneath it? Seems kind of contrived to me.

this is the lamest route in the Red I think

climbing is fun and traversing gives you more climbing and thus more fun

Holy shit!, thats me in the background, i was like 13, ahahahahh how rad!

Traversing in would be incredibly ridiculous, unless you just want to make it harder... but that doesn't warrant an "alternate start" grade in the book...

Really fun route. It should get done more. Also, flying squirrels!

Crux move on this felt harder than crux move on Ro, but this one is less pumpy overall. Pretty decent climb, but a bitch to clean.

Felt a ton easier than Ro.
