Short crux- one of my first 12 on-sights. Felt easy at the grade.

Agreed. Did it today to the 2nd set of anchors for the first time. Steep and pumpy.

Going to the second set of anchors doesn't add any dificulty to this one. The business is the first pitch...again the rock quality up high isn't bad, but not quite as good as Way Up Yonder.

This is a pretty cool route although I had to grab the draws a few times because I couldn't clip off the lower holds! Jug haul past the 4 bolt to the anchors~

I dont know if you would call the bottom a v4 or v5 boulder problem. but the rest is definately worht doing. fun climbing above the 3rd bolt.

Great climbing to the second anchors, I think the start is the hardest couple moves I've felt on a 12b at the Red, very cruxy. I actually like the top of this one better than the top of Way Up Yonder

Ya probably v4 to the first big jug if you have the reach. Great climb with some fun shaped holds.

Definitely worth doing to the second set of anchors. Strevels' second pitch is easier than Way Up Yonder.

What is the purpose of the first set of anchors? What is the grade if you stop there?
