Comments: After finally finding the area, hopped on this thinking it was Orange Juice. After nearly on sighting I thought it was the softest route ever until realizing it was the Infidel. .11d seems about right, pumpy moves with the crux at the anchors. Charge the anchors, and if you dork it take a massive/safe/ fun ride!

Comments: One of the most fun routes at any grade! I found the crux to be getting in a clipping stance for the last bolt. but after cleaning it on TR after a Send Train found some holds I missed the first go around. After all that I would agree the crux is the slabby face! A must do for anyone remotely near 5.12

Comments: Great route. But not "all time" I rated it 3 star, would do 3.5 if I had the option

Comments: 4 star movement, 2 star length. Thought provoking for sure. Last time i was there Full Yellow Jacket did not exist, will need to check it out if i ever get back

Comments: One of the best sport climbs in town! Every move is fun, and it gets progressively harder up until the end. Mega classic

Comments: Super fun, techie burliness. Felt way more exposed than i expected. One of those routes where as you are climbing you are wishing for more bolts, but afterwards you realize its perfect. First climb ever in TC Pros and they performed as expected!

Comments: For sure harder than .10b. Old school 5.9+ is pretty accurate. Would be a super impressive on sight

Comments: Very fun movement on what are most likely manufactured pockets through the crux. Worked the beta on TR, might come back for an RP. High right foot to with rt hand in shitty pocket, left knee scum, left hand gaston, bump left to a shit pocket, throw rt to a side pull jug. Felt like ..11d/.12a to the ledge, actually crux felt significantly harder than any .12b I've ever been on

Comments: I place 2 #3s, a # 1 and #.75 cam. Really run out, but if you are comfy on hands its way more fun to run it out. It climbs so well, its easy to neglect placing gear. Great route.

Comments: I would say it's hard for the grade but not necessarily a sandbag. Compare it to the Aid Crack on Cob Rock in Boulder Canyon (.10d), and I would think the rating is accurate. 2-3 letter grades seems about right.
