    I absolutely loved this climb. The bottom crux is chossy edge climbing standard of other 12s I've done in moose but the rest is really interesting. But from halfway when you pull the small roof to the the upper headwall is great flowstone with a second crux up a really cool sequence on a compression prow. Then at the top its still not totally over. I found myself crimping between fossilized shells and chert on the upper headwall. Breaks down kinda like a V4 into several bolts of 5.10 with lots of rests into another V4 to a moderate rest into one last V3.

    Grade at the base of the climb said 12b, Im inclined to agree. Awkward and hard to read
