I think it's a lot harder than 11a. Maybe 11c. I've done it bunches of times so I may not be accurate.

I agree with Manny. I am climbing pretty strong at the moment; I think it may be an 11c. Compare the moves on this route with True Value (or Fruit Bowl) and then you judge.

This route has only 5 bolts. Someone needs to check their info before posting up routes on MP. This route has always been rated 11c.

Fun all the way. I traversed in on jugs from the left to the first bolt. Yea, kinda reachy but only off the ledge. Definitly 11c-ish.

Just a thought... Maybe not PG if you put a cam in the horizontal above the first bolt. This gives you gear at your feet for the lower crux and w a heads up belay would prevent ground fall before clipping 2nd bolt. Small difference admittedly but an important couple of feet less for a fall. this is a nice line....
