Start out with 15 feet of bouldery climbing that's harder than it looks from the ground to a no hands rest in an alcove. From here, ride a jug rail out right to a reachy clip and begin a 40 foot power endurance section that ends with a heart breaker red point crux involving a blind toss over a roof and a hard lip-turn. From here, moderate, yet steep climbing takes you up and left to the anchors. Unfortunately this route suffers from 2 enhanced holds that without, would yield the hardest route at Fosters and an unbelievable test piece...but with them it is only a good route and fitness builder.

Last crux broke my heart a few times. Sucks to climb all that way then miss the blind toss. Fun route, albeit drilled. The last 20 feet of climbing detracts from it.

Could see it being 13b if you're taller. However, it's that hard for me to get to the last crux.
