I feel like this climb has single moves harder than any of the moves on Disfigured Foreigner or Gettin' Off the Porch. Maybe I missed something???

after working this climb for 2 sessions i definitely feel like it is significantly harder than gettin off the porch and disfigured foreigner. i'm not saying it's 12b hard, but does anyone else feel this way?

Isn't "significantly harder" than 12a called 12b. I would be willing to go 12b on this. I thought it was harder than Disfigured Foreigner for sure. The top will get you attention too.

It could be a letter grade harder. I think it is a bit harder.

maybe it is 12b. comparing this climb to disfigured foreigner, gettin off the porch, guardian's edge, and the wizard--all of which are 12a--i think this climb is significantly harder than all of them.
