Felt light for 12b.

As of summer 2012, the face was streaked with an odd, slick, white deposit, and some of the flakes and cracks were lightly seeping. Fingers smelt bad after this climb -- perhaps some sort of runoff and drip from the camp's plumbing? Either way, it detracted the overall quality of an otherwise fun sport route.
