Comments: 5.11a if you are 5' 10" or over, 5.11d if under 5' 10"

Comments: Starts out hard (after the 1st bolt) & gets harder all the way until the anchors. This is definitely a full grade above Buffalo Power (which is a solid 10c).

Comments: I've seen many '11' climbers fail at the top. They didn't think that it was so easy. I do think that it is easier than 'Magic Light'.

Comments: Many people are confusing LOTP with The Outsiders (thanks to the original posting of this route). The Outsiders is the route that is adjacent to 5GBs - not LOTP! LOTP is one route right of The Outsiders & 2 routes right of 5GBs. LOTP is every bit a 10a. I wouldn't argue with a 10a/b rating. LOTP is significantly harder than 5GBs (5.8) & The Outsiders (5.9).


Location: OR : Central Oregon : Smith Rock : (k) The Dihedrals : Ginger Snap (5.8)

Comments: This is harder than a 5.8 if you follow the bolt line strait up the middle of the slab @ the start w/o deviating to the right or left.
