On The Arete for the finish of Procrastination

Description 

Lower part is continuously overhung, climbing to a bulge. Pull around this and climb hold on the arete. Eases a tiny bit but remains quite sustained. Perhaps this route will seem easier as it is climbed more, however, I felt that it was at least a letter grade more difficult than Bolting Barbie, which is rated at .12a by the online guide and .11d/.12a by the Taos Rock guide. The both guides gives this route an .11d rating.


Location 

This route is the first one to the right of the left side arete on the wall. Lies between Bolting Barbie and the arete.


Protection 

6 bolts to anchors.

The crux for me definitely was clipping and passing the third bolt. The "Mama Jug" just above bolt four sure offers nice relief before the continuous moves along the arete to the finish. Enjoyable route.

I agree with Anthony's comments above--this route feels a tad more difficult than Bolting Barbie.

Not quite as pleasant as the other routes on this excellent wall.
