|I think it should be noted that this route has been cleaned since the first ascent, and got easier in all respects...|

i did not climb this route before it was cleaned, but i can say that it is definitely not 12b/c PG13. it's more like 11c.
regardless of the grading, it's a fun route. the crux moves are similar to -- albeit easier than -- those on mr. lean.
for gear, i'd recommend: two #3 camalots (one as first piece, which is about 15 ft up; the other for the upper 5.9 section), and singles from purple TCU to #2 camalot. nuts if you want; i didn't place any.
be wary of rock about half-way up bottom section (section before the ledge). there's a couple loose flakes in there.
