Description 

5 bolts of easy climbing lead up and left to the middle ledge (use long draws). A hard first move off the ledge is followed by hard sustained climbing and the crux sequence through the last 2 bolts. Originally graded 12c (which I'll admit was a sandbag) then bumped up to 13a. Seems to be settling in at 12d, but you be the judge.


Location 

The 1st route right of Middle Class Cracker follows the leftmost of the 3 black streaks on the obvious overhanging headwall (see photo on the Middle Class page).


Protection 

11 bolts to chains.

Five clips of pure bliss. Sustained, powerfull, two moderate rests, big moves, all business, cruxy middle section, and a dyno for dessert. Who could ask for anything more. Thank you, Beavs. It seems to be hard 12d to me. Not quite 13a, but definitely not 12c.

This route is an absolute gem! I don't think there is a better line in the Poudre, except possibly Dream. This took a TON of work from me and maximum effort to send. For that reason, I think it's solidly 13a. It feels closer in difficulty to a route like Public Solitude than Dream of Poudre or even Landing Strip, but then again, it is a bit reachy and I am not tall. Get on this thing!!!
