This new line (2012) begins on NVPS, sharing its crux and first bolt then continuing straight up through five new bolts. Step right to finish on Stone Free anchor. The route requires intriguing body tension moves and an improbable thin crux up a steep wall. A bit harder and much more sustained than Stone Free.


Six lead bolts, finish on Stone Free Anchor

Great new route and well bolted too!
One of the most pleasant 12s at The Bear in my opinion, and unlike some of the other 12s, the crux isn't right off the ground, which is nice.
Sustained and very homogenous, it doesn't ease up until the 5th bolt.

I found it surprisingly clean for such a recent route. I guess people have top-roped this line before it was bolted maybe?

Really fun climb! I thought it was easier than 12a, more like sustained 11b moves the whole way with a 11c crux pinch after the right leaning traverse. Pumpy!
