|the swain book gives this 11-, having climbed a lot of routes of this style i would say it is probably 10a or 10b, but somewhat different style than most other gunks routes. it will be interesting to see what others think of the route. grades aside, it is fun and well worth jumping on when all of the other routes are qued up.|

|You can add a sit-start under the waist-high roof (or do it as a boulder problem). Just be sure there are no copperheads lying in wait under there! Awkward jamming, stems, and pressure holds.|

As of climbing this last night, there are definitely some loose holds on the route. A small but key hand hold on the left after the first roof is loose and a larger block on the right side (after you pull the roof) seems like it could slide out of it's horizontal at any moment. Luckily you don't need to use the second one, but my hip bumped it and I was scared for my belayer.
Be wary climbing this thing!
Oh yeah, it's an awesome little roof. Well worth climbing!
