Multiple thin cruxes make for sustained climbing with the final crux coming just after the 100' anchors. Great climbing after the 100' anchors so make sure to go all the way to the top! If lowering with anything other than an 80m rope, lower to the 100' anchors, pull, then lower from there.

The guidebook says 12c but it felt closer to 12b.

6 feet below the anchors and just to the left, there is a hefty block hanging precariously. Once you pass it, you can see that it's chained to the wall above and glued in place. After witnessing the huge exfoliation on the routes to the left; Culture Shock and Double agent ( and ending up finishing on this route to avoid the 30 foot runout and bird poop varnish that was hidden behind the fallen flakes) I found this chained up block and it was uber spooky. Be warned, since the block itself has a great crack to use on the underside, its sketchy at best and directly above the belay.
