Muscle through the same crux as Scorpion, but head right before Scorpion's huecos. Monkey-swing through pockets and holes to the anchors way over right. Looks longish, and is, but because the second half runs sideways, a 60 meter rope will lower you to the boulder.
Judge us for the artificial holds above the crux if you like. But first consider you're climbing something that other people risked their lives, and spent a considerable amount of time and that valuable money stuff, to provide for you--free of charge. We put the holds there so you can maintain a nice 12a experience. Or, you may eschew them and head left for six feet of inconsistent 13b if you prefer. Pride before the fall, and all that.
