Comments: be careful on the giant flake around the 2nd bolt, thing is super hollow and fragile. Tread lightly

Comments: I personally think this route is super classic! It's a beautiful line, very unique, requires a good lead head sure, but it's amazing and everyone should try it once.

Comments: I agree with SCherry, last part of the route is the redpoint crux and that this route is a 5.12. Holds have broken at the crux. It's harder than Pretty in Pink for me.

Comments: Excellent route, If only it were longer it would be 4 stars. Nice change from Swiss Tower area

Comments: There are fun moves on this route but the amount of loose rock and rope drag really takes away from it. Would not recommend this one.

Comments: Tough 11d, maybe 12a. Certainly harder than some other Echo 12a's. Great route either way.

Comments: This climber is not "working immaculate". This looks like Devotion, not Immaculate.

Comments: Sweet Route!! 1st pitch is the probably the hardest physically but the 2nd pitch crux is way harder mentally. 3rd pitch is really cool with a difficult thin section. Thank you Dave Tidwell for this route! This is definitely a classic, go try it.

Comments: Hard move past the 3rd bolt. not sure on the grade but felt harder than other 11b's.

Comments: The top of this route can be protected with a bomber #1 BD cam placement about 5 feet above the last bolt in the crack.

Comments: This route is awesome, not scary at all. It's classic even with the 4th bolt being a little right.

Comments: This route is really good, fun movement. I agree about the anchors being way right. I had a hard time clipping them, having to reach out way right of the final holds.

Comments: Poor rock quality and soft for the grade, more like 5.9
