We Believe in Nothing 


Description 

Low power moves with one really hard crank off a small edge. The crux definitely is moving past the first bolt. There is also a right variation that goes up and right after the first bolt then traverses back to the second bolt. The difficulty eases off past the second bolt. Excellent climbing.

Protection 

Quickdraws, 2 bolts ontop

The direct line of travel provides a far more aestheticóand I think harderóway of travel. Involves a high step and an improbable gaston. Great little crux!

I'll second that, the traverse right and around the crux doesn't really count

Remember that "improbable" gaston? Seems to have disappeared. Route still goes, but feels harder. Autobahn used to be a "one-move" 5.11d. Now it might be a "one-move" 5.12a.

I'd agree with the one move 12a. The move is HARD!
