|This route is named Big Canyon (‘å’J or da gu). Like many other routes at Music Hall, it is equipped with reliable glue-in bolts. 5.11b is a fair grade.|

|The name "‘åŒÛ" ("da4-gu3") means "Big Drum", not "Big Canyon" (where "Drum" and "Canyon" sound identical ("gu3") in Chinese). Many routes in "Music Hall" are named after music instruments.|

As a shorter dude, the suggested beta for me was "grow" but after watching my taller partner tackle the crux with creative Leg-work, I used very similar methods to get past the ledge -- height may be a hindrance but certainly not an excuse on this climb.
However the fun doesnt stop there! Poor feet and small holds after the ledge mean sustained 11b action all the way to the anchors.
