Although the climbing is mediocre, this is a rare type of route for Foster Falls, being quite hard but not steep. Unlike the 5.12 jug hauls out roofs in the bunkers, this one is almost vertical. The crux hits around halfway up requiring either a big dyno up and left or thin tweaking. Average sized folks aren't going to get fingers into the tweaky slots at the crux, so "Launch" for the arete.

Chossy. Possibly drilled. Pretty crappy route.

I think this route is fun and worth doing if you're climbing the grade. The bouldery moves at the crux are pretty enjoyable, I found. Also, it's pretty obvious those pockets weren't drilled, because if they were, they wouldn't be that sharp!

The pockets aren't drilled, per se, but are definitely "enhanced." This is super shitty route if you have fat fingers.

This route is fun, easy climbing leads to one big move, feels softer than 12b/c tho. The pocket after the crux is extraordinarily large, but it feels natural
