In my recollection, being tall was a significant advantage for the crux on this route. I remember the beginning of the route being very easy (5.8?). The crux was a little tricky to figure out but not particularly difficult for me. The end of the route is about 15 feet of steep jug-bashing.
I'd give it 12a. sure the climbing before the roof is easy, but pulling the crux is definitely 12a in my estimation. there is now a fixed draw (chain) hanging at the crux, so it's easier to clean, and you can get on it and not leave a biner if you can't pull the crux.

Sorry, not 12a. Easy to a V3+ boulder problem. My beta was to get more of a side pull out of that pocket.
i thought it was fun getting there but its like 5.10 climbing, and then the 5.12 move came and i found out its not tall guy friendly at all! i saw 3 short guys get it no problem and then all of us tall guys had to get all ugly and make up moves that sucks. if they even got it.
