It's only 5.11 if you crank the direct start. It is much easier traversing in from the side.

Crimpy direct start. The start moves may qualify as 5.11 if encountered higher up on a long route. Pulling the crimps right off the ground with fresh arms make it feel more like 5.10+. The rest of the climb is a formality.

I think the grade controversy is due to the height dependent finish. Some can reach the chains from a big hold kind low. Some have to reach out right and gain the chains via some slopers. My guess is below 5' 6" this is an 11 and above that height this is a 10.
