Mado climbing "RA".


This route has the look of a moderate, but further investigation, reveals a powerful and thin crux.


Climb the nice arete in the center of Quarry Wall.


6 bolts.

rating: 5.11d 7a 24 VIII E5 6a

This climb is easier than Hairless Dog at the East Quarry and Sun Dog at Animal World in Boulder Canyon. So I agree it is not 5.12a but it deserves to be rated 5.11d. Calling it 5.11a is a joke!
