Scotty firing through the 12a crux on the lower po...

Description 

Power through several small bulges on holds of decreasing size to reach the first anchor. Stop here for a decent 12a, or continue for a much better 12c. Long, powerful moves thru the large roof lead to a slightly easier finish. Another Sills classic.

Location 

When you first reach the climbing on the approach, you will be descending the slabs right in front of the Line-of-Sight Wall. Crosshairs tackles the largest overhang on the wall.

Protection 

16 bolts to anchors. There is an optional anchor just below the large bulge if you want to do a 12a pitch without the burlfest above.
