This route was an open project until recently when it was done at 12b.
I have found that most hard climbers avoid the practice wall like the plague due to the short walls and easy routes but I would urge all of you to swing by for at least this route!
The Handout starts on a large right undercling when you reach out left to a worse undercling and throw a large cross to a good ledge. This incredibly fun move sets the tone for the rest of the route with a solid pump factor with some low percentage stabs to pockets, and a couple of bad pinches.
Great flow and awesome holds (in this climbers opinion) definitely make this route a must do at the grade!

I really enjoyed this line a lot, pretty sustained for such a short route, felt very sequential.
