Second route from the left end of The Corner Stone. Head up the slab to a little roof (possible to clip 1st bolt to the left), pull through using an undercling and small right hand seam which leads to a jug by the 4th bolt. Continue on easy terrain to a 2 bolt anchor, up and left (shared with5.9/10 route to the left)
6 bolts / 2 bolt anchor with rap rings.

I know Boulder Canyon grades are soft, but this route is stretching it a bit. It definately has one tricky move but that doesn't make for a 12a. Like almost all of the newer Boulder Canyon sport climbs, lets knock it down two grades. That would be a bit more honest.

Try it when it is humid out. Felt like 5.12 to me and my partner then... Tripple clutching and deadpointing onto slippery slopers.
Maybe the 'jug' is gone? I sure went off of some small stuff and had a series of moves rather than 1 move. Had more trouble with this thing than other 12's I've been on lately.
But you could wander way off route and make it very easy. The whole cliff if pretty packed in and contrived.
