I onsighted it barefoot, but it seemed hard for 11b. Great route though.

Really tough if you are below 5'8", luckily I am not.

Maybe the best route I have ever climbed. There is a slightly tough clip if you are fighting the pump right below the anchors. I took a big whipper from there, but its a clean fall. At that bolt, I suggest clipping from the undercling and not the smaller hold higher up.

Been to this wall like 5 times trying to climb it and there is always some huge party(like in the video) sessioning it for hours. Tried in October with 100 cars in the parking lot and in December with 3 cars in the parking lot and someone is always on it. Get in line!

stellar stellar line. there are few lines in the red that literally "own" their own wall. getchasome

This climb and area seem to hold a lot of moisture and were pretty wet when other nearby walls were dry. I would guess you need 3-5 days of dryness before climbing here.

Awesome line. If this was labeled this 11c/d I don't anyone would blink an eye. way harder than a number of other 11c's in the Red.
