BETA PHOTO: The Showdown (5.11d), Holcomb Valley Pinnacles

Description 

A lower face section (5.10+) gains a stance below the crux headwall where small but positive crimps lead up a slightly overhanging wall to a hidden finishing jug at the top.

Fairly continuous in nature throughout with fun moves and good protection. The anchor needs to be lowered however to prevent undue rope damage.

Location 

Located in the center of the wall, just right of Shootin' Blanks and a short ways left of Pistol Whipped.

Protection 

7 bolts, sport anchors

Thought this route was awesome, might be hard to put the anchors anywhere better due to the juggy dike at the end.

Very nice route. cool, committing moves with a great view. The crux face is perfect. Personally, I thought this one was slightly harder than "the hangin judge" 5.11d, and the book calls it a 5.12b so Ill call it a 5.12a -- though a bit soft for that grade
