Yea, this route is like 11c trad style. Those guys rate the approach grade III. Bring plenty of nuts and skip the bolts if your actually looking to climb. Pleez.

If it weren't for the crux this route would be easier than bare metal

Yeah, brilliant. If it weren't for the hard part, this route wouldn't be hard. Really?

the hard move at the 6th (?) bolt makes it 12b.

I haven't been on it, but I'm thinking that the 12b section makes it 12b. I think.

Stellar climb. Gets progressively harder over the first six bolts. I find this one better than BMT.
