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
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
3 out of 4 1/2 climbers surveyed can't be wrong! Jun 20, 2006

Three climbers, including Sparky, agreed it is very soft for 11d but pretty fun. Easier than Spiderman. Jun 18, 2006
