This is a great route with hard crux in the middle. It seems like a crimp broke off of the crux. After talking with a local who also said it had broken, this seems to be the case. After sending it I felt like it was probably .13-. the crux is harder than any other move on the wall and harder than any move on Full Facial. Maybe a V7 mono crux? You are coming right off of a decent shake, so the pump isn't much of a factor.

I'd say this route is probably .13- now.


It is in between Bone Flex and Bone Machine.


9 bolts.

There are at least three ways to try the crux...the V7 mono, the straight up variation, and the left variation. Seemed like the left variation was the easiest...I'll give it soft 13a with that beta.
