Three climbers, including Sparky, agreed it is very soft for 11d but pretty fun. Easier than Spiderman. Jun 18, 2006
3 out of 4 1/2 climbers surveyed can't be wrong! Jun 20, 2006
This climb is probably closer to 11c than 11d. Sure wish the anchors were lower so the rope didn't take such a beating. Jun 26, 2006

A helmet is recommended for the belayer as I pulled a number of palm-sized pieces, in addition to inducing a constant drizzle of grit.

I find the low angle start surprisingly challenging until I wire a sequence. The layback moves up the arete, which make the climb, are unique and grin-inducing. The final moves on the arete along with a tricky clip have always felt hard to me but perhaps this is simply due to flawed beta. Jun 9, 2014
