I was told this route was easier than the Knucko route to the right. I disagree, I found the crux to be technical with sustained climbing to the top. Maybe it's easier when it's not raining? Jun 6, 2008

i would agree. This seemed the hardest of the 11b's on this wall. The crux comes late just when the pump is coming. Nov 27, 2011

I thought Knucko's Pride of the North was more difficult. But we are picking at straws. They are different routes. I'd say this one was more technical, but both solid 11B's.

I did however enjoy this climb more. Jan 15, 2018
