Crimpy and powerful. A stick clip on the first is good. Don't blow the second clip. Hardest 5.11 on the wall IMO.

A great climb. Had a fun time working the moves. A worthy goal.

This is the hardest 11 on the wall. Don't know why the grade doesn't show it. It is as close to 12a as you can get. I wonder if people are afraid of getting called soft. If there was a 11d/12a rating that would be my opinion on this one.
