Description 

This is the bolted line just left of 'Tailspin'.

(Description from the new Fixed Pin guidebook):
Make hard bouldery moves off the ground, and move through easier, but pumpy climbing to finish near the anchor of 'Tailspin'.

Variation: (5.12c)
The direct start can be skipped by starting on 'Tailspin' and traversing into 'Folsom Flute' at the first bolt. It is an excellent variation.

  • I have not done the initial 5.13 boulder problem crux; however, the Variation is fantastic and well worth the effort.

Protection 

10 or 11 bolts to chain anchors.

Did the top of this break? Seems way hard for 12c.

No, nothing has broken as of last Tuesday. It's 12c, because you can practically lay down and take a nap before the crux.
