Comments: Fun climb. A climber's 11. Techy crux that took a couple goes to figure out and good rests throughout. Not burly or pumpy, but you've got to be a skilled climber to send (no muscling up steep jugs..cough...Wall of Justice...cough).

Comments: Bottom crux is hard, but over quickly, and goes right into a bomb rest. The juice on the this thing really comes at the top. The pump coming out of the open handed ledge is unreal for as short as the climb is. 12b/c Good fun.

Comments: Superb climb!!!! Pumpy for the grade but adequate rest 4th and 5th bolt if you can get the feet. There's a jug just behind the anchors with NO chalk, so make the extra two moves to make the clip casual.

Comments: Awkward climb. if you blow the second bolt, you're in for a bad fall. I agree, neither rating seems appropriate. I'll go 10d also. I recommend sending it, then forgetting about it. Hip-Op is a better warm up (even bolt to bolt if needed), and WAY more fun!

Comments: Good line! Short but powerful off mostly good holds (minus the top mantle). Great climb if you're breaking into 12. Only my second 12a and it went down first go.

Comments: Ok climb. Got on it today, was pretty wet at the ledge traverse. Scared me a little, heady. All in all, fun.

Comments: This thing is Way no fun. Top is razor blade crimps, no feet, on slab bulge. Watch out for the broken glass (really) all over the crag area.

Comments: Does anyone know the route between Period Piece and Period Epic? It felt like a long (9 bolts or so) 5.8 or 5.9ish. It's not listed on MountainProject or in the "Shelf Road Rock" guide book. Just curious.

Comments: Hard to rate this problem. It feels like a chopped gym route. If you can stick the top dyno it's really pretty easy, but you've got to hit aim well. All in all it's quite a bit of fun, but no way 12 climbing.
