A fantastic route through some really amazing rock. Fun, technical and bouldery climbing to a rather improbable but totally doable final move.

That said, there is simply nothing 12c about it I think it's 12a/b, possibly 12b at most. The one exception to that would be if you're short--the upper crux would be extremely hard if you're less than 5' 6", I suspect, and that might warrant the 12b/c grade.
