No particular move on this climb is hard, its just stacking them one after another that makes it a challenge. This is a good one to do bolt to bolt as your first 11.

This is one of my favorite routes in Iowa. It was a route that I did early in my climbing career and it proved to be a valuable experience - learning how to climb efficiently, to straight arm on clips, to build endurance.

This would be a classic at any area. Similar to Twinkie at the red, but 50 feet shorter.

When I was on this a long time ago I recall the crux bolt being in pretty poor shape. How's it looking now?
Regardless it was a classic route for sure.

When did this thing become 11b? I realize I have not climbed here in almost a decade, but my recollection and my guidebook (yes, there used to be a guidebook) both call this 11d....did something change?
