I like to point out... Dr. Coolhead was rated 10a by the Lohn guidebook. Today its easily a 10c/d, I think Tony put it at 10d. I just see rating fluctuate so much, I try to not get wrapped up in all of it, plus some routes simply have secret beta that can unlock the easier moves. All told, great feedback. I enjoy seeing what others think and exactly why. Sep 9, 2015

After climbing Arial Anticipation, League of Doom/Space, and Asleep at the wheel in the same day, I would rate the climb a 12a as it is a bit harder to link up into a flawless red point as the other aforementioned climbs rated 11c. Additionally, I felt the moves and crimps to be equal to those found on Rap Bolter but non as difficult as the crux on whipping post. As such, I feel 12a is an appropriate ratting for the climb.

5 bolts on this one.

anyone know about the crack to the right of it, it goes on gear at about 10a or so, i felt like it was a bit spicy. Mar 7, 2011

I think I remember doing this route in spring/summer of 1993 as the name sounds very familiar. If memory serves, it is almost directly across the river from the descent into the canyon and consists of 4-6 bolts...not my intent to provide beta, but to try and remember experiences there. I think it was installed around that time by climbers from Austin, of course the names escape me, but they were pretty excited about it and I may have had the second ascent. On the last clip before the anchors for the on-site, I blew the clip trying to reach through and fell upside down for maybe 20'. Left quite a rope burn/snake around my let as the rope wrapped around my leg.
I had been climbing for a couple of years at that point, but with little sport experience...looking back, I was probably lucky I didn't wack my head!
As far as the grade goes, I have a hard time believing this is .12a...I remember discussing with the FA party that it was .10+/11-.
Look forward to more comments on this; maybe someday I'll get back down there.
