As a historical note, Jeff did the FA with an eight foot sling hanging down from the anchor below the last long move, which is a factor in the finality of the ascent. I don't know who actually did the true FA. Possibly Brian Toy.

12c/ it easy 12 d or hard 12c whcih ever makes you feel better. Either way you gotta make that last move over the buldge and clip the chain from the holds next to them:)

Jeff did the route again with the long slings removed before anyone else redpointed the route. I think it is definitely harder than Raiseyourerection

awkward sloppy holds on dirty rock lead to a good rest and fun climbing on quality rock up high.

It helps having chriss shout beta to you the entire way on this. I liked it. Clipping the chains is definitely the crux.

anyone do this since that crimp down low broke?
said on August 28th, 2009
tejas yes i saw porter and matt nasty do this about a week ago..... they said it was hard with the hold missing but they still crushed it......

From the story I heard this route should be changed back to the name it was supposed to have which is Subman.

Another great undertow line. Love a route that has a little busuness waiting your you at the end. I think all of these undertow climbs are more varied and higher quality than they look from the ground.

best 12d on the wall

Felt like a very hard move right after the first bolt. Trying to clip the chains is fun. Not sure how anyone could give this thing 5 stars - not even close to the best 12d on the wall.

Bottom is chossy with improving rock quality on your way up.
