~40' of sustained underclinging with poor feet leads to easier knob climbing above.

4 out of 5 stars Delicate

I also found the moves less strenuous than your average 12a, but still managed to slip off twice. Really delicate.

Above the roof, I headed left toward the tube. between the last two bolts there were insecure moves with a steep price for mistake, I traversed left to another line and completed that. The left has a runout, but easy section. The right is about 10+ R

Onsight Onsight ascent by: rexcarrs on 1998-09-10 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars One of the softest 12a's in Yosemite.

I've done this route at least twice, and I swear it's only 5.11 something. You gotta trust your feet low. The upper face is fun & pretty cruiser on steep knobs.

I missed 1 crucial undercling hold and blew the onsight. 1 fall then finished the route.
