Nearing the crux of Celestial Omnibus (5.12-)

Description 

Fantastic. Climb up and out of the left side of the Bronco Bowl. Follow the the tufas and jugs to the anchors. Though there doesn't seem to be any 12 moves on it, the pump-factor due to the steepness is maddening. The second pitch is still an open project. Get out there and do it!

Protection 

8 draws to anchors.

Great route, great position, fun crux followed by a huge jug...if only it was longer. Worth the hassle!

This is one of the coolest routes. Anyone who is in the area, and climbs the grade, it's an absolute must to do this route! It's sort of short sadly. The first pitch is a sandbagged 11a with mono holds! Brilliant! the fixed rope in Bronco bowl needs to be replaced on the other hand.

Hey Curt. There's this thing? It's called a paragraph break...
