Starts right of Barbarian Rising. Easy start to fun fingers/off-fingers. Rest up for tough boulderly crux protected by the smallest wires you own. Remains on you until the finish.

4 out of 5 stars Casual locks to wild crux

originally done straight up the corner and the first 12... both stats boggle the mind. Climbed the slappy arete to the right and protected in the pockets. I think that is the standard way to do it and it still feels solid for 12b.

3 out of 5 stars cool crux sequence

otherwise not too bad. Gear was hard to come by in this crux. This climb would be a quite impressive onsight but a pedestrian flash.
