Comments: Acording to what you suggest both Uncle Tom and Kill Uncle go at, 12a and minimum 12c respectively, there would be around a two letter grade difference or more between both routes. I find that there is a discrepancy between that and Mountain Project's consensus for both routes, 11d and 12a/b. There would have been an even smaller disparty if I would have voted 11d or 12a for Uncle Tom.

I don't find any significance in my failing to onsight Uncle Tom and the grade. I did it about two years ago w... more >>

Comments: First of all, my response was meant for one post in particular. And secondy, I don't see any huge relevance in your "onsight" comment. I believe 99% of climbers fall within that catargory of their limit being someone else's onsight. I agree that everyone is entitled to their opinions just as I am to mine, which includes grade suggestions.

Comments: The concenous based on the votes does not call it 5.12. I would hardly call it "having the beta dialed," given that I got it second go. The hardest move on Uncle Tom is moderate at best. Low end 5.11d I could see, but solid 5.11c suits it best in my opinion. No way is Kill Uncle harder than 12b, maybe if you can't crimp. The crux for Kill Uncle is solid V4, no harder, which puts it in the 5.12- range.

Comments: I agree with above comment, awesome route but anchors are way too high over the lip and too much moss on the final slab making it precarious and a fall perilous.

Comments: Quite sandbagged, would be a 5.11 at most other crags. My 2 cents.

Comments: If you're tall with a decent ape index you're going to be able to bypass the crux like my friend did, but for us shorter folks you gotta commit to the crux. Maybe in the Buttermilks it'd be a V2 but in Berkeley it's def a V3

Comments: Did this without the chimney, I think this route is harder than Napa Valley Party Service. Not the best but worth doing once.

Comments: There are two ways to do this climb; first way is to find the hidden crimp/jug far right of the first bolt avoiding the direct start then traversing in around the second bolt. I think this way is 12a. The second way is to do the direct underneath the first bolt, this way is full-on till you get to the third clip where the 5.9 begins. I think this way is 12b.

Comments: On second thought, I feel this route is a better example of a benchmark 5.12b than a 5.12c, our egos should take a back seat. Excellent route and spicy up top.

Comments: An excellent line, probably the best quality route I did on this trip. But to call it a 5.12a is a bit of a fluff grade. 5.11d would seem to be more appropriate; even at that, not the hardest for that grade.

Comments: Hold broke at the second to last bolt where one of the already little crimps are, turning it into a micro-crimp. Sequence through there is quite a bit harder now, feels like it could be 12a/b now, or just 12b, not sure. A few more big holds might brake, loose and wiggly.
