This may not be the best beta, but for shorties like me it makes the move to the jugs totally static.

Comments: Wow, one of the most fun routes I have ever climbed. Perfect jugs through the roof to a tough move past the first lip. The final mantle is insane. When I read the route description I thought that the crux described was turning the first roof by a mantle move, while the first roof is challenging, it is not the mantle described above. The final mantle comes two bolts after turning the first roof and definitely makes one fight to gain the chains.

Comments: I have no shame, I went left at the fourth bolt which made the route no harder than 10d. Straight up looks hard and I'd like to do it proper someday. The best part of the climb was the thin crimps on the headwall, so good.

Comments: Awesome problem, definitely one of the best at Rotary. Although scary, it is relatively safe with two medium-sized crashpads placed appropriately and a strong spotter that you trust. My partner fell from a high heel hook with his hips above the lip, came down totally sideways and was fine with just the two pads and a spot. Don't let the intimidation of the problem keep you away like it did me for so long, it is a great problem that should be done more often.
