    Reaching hidden hold around bulge makes this route hard to onsight.

    Great route, but too short... wish it were longer! (But I guess that's true for most routes on this wall). With the beta I was using, I'd say for me, no harder than 12b. Maybe even 12a? Especially since there is a really good rest separating the opening tough moves from the upper tough moves. I could see how my beta would be more difficult for someone much shorter than me (I'm 5'11"). But there's probably beta that works for shorter folks, I didn't mess around trying to figure something else out though. Regardless, I think this route has some of the best moves on this wall!
