Exile (11d), Harder than it looks. Intriguing combination of sublime slopers and funky pinches. Stick clip the first bolt if you are at all timid. I started this route the same way you would start Wilderness. This route is harder than License to thrill(11c at membrain) and easyer than Wilderness(12a/b one route to the left). I call it 11d, and I give it 2 out of three stars. It is a great route to do after License to thrill but before moving on to the harder crimps of Wilderness. Great addition to the wall!

I never knew what the route on the right was called, but I agree that .11d is a good rating for it. Sweet little line. I enjoyed it.

What is the route to the right of Fern Gully?

It is kind of on its own piece of rock. It's about 5 bolts, most of them being easy slab until a thin section to the chains.

That route to the right feels like a .10c to me? Maybe a .10d. Whatever it is, it is definitely harder, and steeper than it looks - which seems to be the theme for this area.
