Start was a lot of stemming up the wide crack/chimney for about 20 ft. There is one old piton to clip about 25 ft up. Once above the piton I transitioned to the face right of the crack where the climbing is much easier, but would return to the crack periodically to place gear.

The piton wiggles, you might want to back it up. Felt the moves in the corner were 5.6 ish, and the guide we have for 11 Mile lists it as 5.6.

Super high quality first pitch and long. I moved right and followed and interesting flake system (5.5) to the tree ledge. Corner looked dirty, and it seems people are following this path now for P1. Pitch 2 was meh, not even sure where the 5.3 move was. Kinda soloed it. Wish there was a rap to the ground from the tree. I'd bring a second rope just so I could skip P2.

Led this today in two pitches, used Stewart Green's guidebook for reference. Took first pitch to under the roof, second pitch up the crack/chimney left of the roof. The rock itself is great. Used the piton for the first piece of pro.
