Really fun climb, all the holds are relatively big so this route tests your big muscle groups more than your fingers. A fun campus start leads to a powerful boulder problem at the third bolt. A few easier moves up the flake leads to a final boulder problem to latch a huge jug and the end of the difficulties. Probably on the softer side of 13a, but I think it makes the grade.
