Christian Burrell just past the crux on the first pitch of Stratosphere.  
My partner and I both felt that the free moves clearing that roof depicted on pitch were more like .11a/b, and the half-driven fixed pin above did not inspire one to have much confidence in pulling that move.

Anyway, if you are expecting something in the ten plus range here, you'll be in for a surprise, especially if you are on the short side.

This crux has a twin down in Southern California. Pull the .11b crux on "The Flakes" at Tahquitz to see what I mean. Apr 20, 2015
