Description 

Easy, fun, left trending climbing at the start leads straight up through a right facing type feature to a very bouldery crux (V6) around and above the second bolt. Climb straight up through the crux to the horizontal break- up higher you will eventually move left past the rounded arete and into the left facing corner feature. Finish the route by exiting out the right side of the big roof and clipping the chains above. Expect shallow two finger pockets with cranker moves at the crux and a bit of pump management above.

Location 

Sixth route from the left. Start by traversing left from the ground up to the first bolt by the sand-lense huecos.

Protection 

Bolted. Lower from anchors.

More aesthetic finish is on Stop That Train because you get its crux, sans rest, after this business of Grushenka is done. Expect this to feel a lot more than one grade harder than the "12b" jug haul on the right.

I agree the link into STT is great! It does feel a touch harder than the Grushenka standard finish as well (you don't get that softball rest cobble on the link). V6 to a rest, to 4 bolts of sustained 5.12a/b climbing, to the final STT V3 crux, to overhanging jugs. I think 12+ seems right for the link-up. Makes a great fitness route!
