This route was established by some combination of Mark Thomas, Tom Wezwick, Karl Kiser, and Chris Kessler. I believe Tom was the main driver and did the FA. Mar 8, 2008
Mark Thomas did the FA. The rating difference comes from whether one uses the better right hand hold or goes straight up the face (Mark's vision). Apr 1, 2008

Another great climb in the Grotto. The only thing contrived about it is making the arete off-limits for the 11c grade. What is this, the gym? Sep 1, 2008

It appears loose rock isn't confined to the winter wall. Be watchful on this route too. I pulled off a fist size hold when I climbed it last weekend. Nov 10, 2009
