As the other 2 said, this is really soft- closer to 11b/c than 12a.

I think 11b is generous. I've climbed 11a's harder than this route.

  • Definitely WAY easier than a .12a (Def no V4 moves anywhere)
  • Felt like it was over-bolted
  • The cobbles are solid
  • Maybe if you are really really really short this is a .12a?
  • Definitely worth doing if you're in the area!!

The reason this route seems soft is because it was rated 12a when there were about half the amount of good holds prior to the honey bucket, however with all the many new options for good holds to throw up to the "honey bucket" 12a is a stretch
