Great little sport climb that is pumpy, sustained and has moves that will make you feel, for lack of a better word, sexy. Which is why my wife and I have come to call it "sexy beast."

And it's one of the few 11a's that might be a bit on the soft side, rating-wise.

Possible to set a stopper down low rather than highball the first bolt.

I believe I rated it 5.10d after doing the first ascent.

Hmmm... For 5.10d it felt very soft, I rated it 10b after I on-sighted it. Just my humble opinion. Fun climb nonetheless, good FA Ken!

I guess I better down grade all my routes by a couple grades. I will have to do it again to see if it feels any easier. I am glad it is getting done.
